Pretty wow... In comparison, my Sigma needs 27.6 cm MFD. Really nice. Blotchy bokeh? yes, but as you say, what are the alternatives?

Exactly. In addition it looks like they perform well as landscape lenses. Now I'm thinking of when I go for a short hike in the woods near home and I want to stay super-light; macro opportunities are the most probable, but occasionally a landscape might be good. Both could perhaps be done with a single Tamron lens (20mm or 24mm).
