I'll hopefully get all the want questions out of the way quick and start to contribute soon, but for now its want...want...want...
So I'm getting back behind the after a long hiatus and due to my current interests macro is going to sit right in. I've just invested in my new-s/h 7D body, I have my sport 's sorted, now for the macro stuff. I've read many review articles, sat through as many videos and spoke to a few (Perth) camera shop sales guys of which almost every one has a different recommendation this may be due to the group of viable 's are so close in quality they are hard to distinguish between thus I hear conflicting advise.
Question: So that being said I'm looking for a macro (Duh) for insect's primarily with the obvious flower and raindrop thrown in, I'd like to keep the $$ under or around $1K as I'd like to get it right once and with an option of it suiting a full frame camera in the future if at all possible. Quality is key but if I can get a top quality and spend less it just means more money for other gear
I'll just add some of the recommended 's 105mm f/2.8 EX DG, SP 90mm, EF 100 f/2.8, EF 100mm f/2.8L and 150mm f/2.8...
I understand that everyone has a favorite and we are all different people but if I can get it narrowed down to a few I can make a decision from there.. with some tips along the way would be much appreciated
Thanks in advance
