I've always though manual focus was the only way to do macro. I don't necessarily use the minimum focus distance (on some of my setups that would be touching the lens) but final focus is always by moving the camera (or subject).

My focusing skills are not spectacular but for macro they still tend to be better than AF. If I practiced them more I'm sure they'd improve too.
