I was told by some learned photographers that manual focus was the only way to do wildlife macro. So that's what I did. Personally the results were disasterous. I am not sure whether it is my aging eyes or my aging camera (it's not the latter), but the results were so bad I thought that the lense was a lemon.
I do believe that the "manual focus" advice goes back to the days when autofocus for macro was not good. One reason I ended up with the Tamron was because I saw a number of reviews commending the accuracy and speed of the autofocus.
With the majority of the insects on the move, to me, autofocus is the way to go.
