Looking for a macro lens
Jun 22, 2010

I am looking for a macro lens and a piece of advice. It has been a while since I bought my last lens. I almost forgot how to choose them.

I currently have D200 but intend to go with D700s/D900 when it comes out. Most of my gear is still full frame and I intend to keep it that way. So, DX lens is not an option.

I do not plan to shoot bugs. I plan to do some studio close ups - furits, odd textures, beans... Home decor style photography.

I checked on-line and there are a couple of lenses availbale - 60 and 100 Micro from Nikon and a couple of similar from Sigma. While in general I prefer to go with Nikon, I have a few exreamly good lense from Sigma, but I got all of them by "referals".

I would greatly appreciate an advice here.
