Macro Lens Advice
Mar 16, 2007

I'm considering the following lesnes:

1) Tamron 90/2.8
2) Sigma 105/2.8
3) Sigma 150/2.8 HSM

Never owned a true 1:1 macro lens. Would like to get one of the above to explore the 1:1 world.

I'm not considering the Nikkor 105/2.8 VR because I use flash and/or tripod. VR is not needed, and I'm not willing to pay extra for something that I won't use.

Other than exploring the 1:1 world, I would also want to use this macro lens for general floral photography.

By the way, I won't shoot insects, because I'm afraid of bugs. So, my 1:1 world will have nothing that moves.

So, anyone with experience with any of these lenses to share? Any advice? Thank you in advance.
