Best Tele Macro
Sep 13, 2010


I'm considering a tele macro lens. It seems 4 models are generally available:

Canon 180mm f/3.5L
Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Di LD
Sigma 180mm f/3.5 EX DG APO
Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG APO

The extra half-stop of the Sigma 150mm being irrelevant for Macro, which would be the better buy. The Canon is much more expensive than the others, and the consensus on the net seems to be that it is overpriced. The Tamron and Sigma 1800mm lenses are pretty much both the same price.

Sigma sems to often be hit-or-miss from one lens to another. Is Tamron like that also?
