Heya! I want to eventually dabble in Macro stuff as well. I love experimenting with different photography styles and having the options for other things!
I have a wide angle, a general purpose, and now would like a Macro lens.
I have a 50mm f2.5 Macro that a friend gave me after his camera was ruined. It has no auto-focus as that was broken.
But I've also been reading reviews online about the 60mm, 100mm and 100mm L
This seems to be getting the best reviews:
Instead of just basing decisions on reviews, I was hoping people here who have them or have used them would be able to help me decide on a direction.
Can anyone help shed some light on these range of lenses? What should I look for, etc.
Would a 60mm be the best value since I can use it for portraits too? Should I fess up and go for the 100mm L-series, or should I save that extra bit of cash for the non L-series?
Or should I check out Sigma, Tamron and Tokinas variants? I'm not a brand fan-boy, so they seem like fair options to me.
