Portrait+Macro
Jan 6, 2010

Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased my first DSLR the EOS1000D with the lens kit 18-55. My first purchase since I do a lot of travelling was the Tamron 18-270.

Moving on I want to acquire more "purpose" lenses mainly for portraits and macro as I know these two go along well.
Here are my current choices after extensive searches:

Canon 50mm 1.4 + Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro
Canon EFs 60mm f2.8 macro + Canon 85mm 1.8
Canon EFs 60mm f2.8 macro only

Here is the catch :
No budget for ring flash
Would like a fast lens for night photography

Can anyone help me narrow this down a bit?

current kit:
-EOS1000D
-Canon 18-55mm (non IS)
-Tamron 18-270mm
-Tokina 11-16mm
-Canon Speedlight 430EXII
