I am new to digital SLR and just purchased the D50 and the Tamron 18-200 XR Di II lens. This lens is suppose to be able to take close-ups (flowers etc), but I can't seem to do this...its not even allowing me to take the picture. I have not used any of the manual or semi automatic settings yet. I am only using the pre-set Macro setting.
I suspect it has something to do with the focus setting, but I thought this would be taken care of with the Macro setting (flower icon).
I would appreciate any help...again, I am a newbie to this (former point and shooter, and probably with continue to do so...except with this better camera).
