I was all set to purchase a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens when someone mentioned to me that a 60mm f/2.8 macro lens might be a better way to go. I have a 450D and not going to upgrade in the foreseeable future. I love macro photography and just want something to allow me to do this as my current kit lenses have serious limitations. I've heard the 60mm is a good portrait lens also?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
