Best macros-Nikon 105 VR Sigma 70 f2.8?
Apr 26, 2011

I am searching for the best macros available in the industry to pick a setup for copy work and closeup work where I need excellent sharpness and color. To date I have been using a Canon 50d and Canon 60mm f2.8 which is a pretty good setup but would like to get better.

From all that I have read it seems that for 105mm or less in focal length the Nikon 105 f2.8 VR and Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro are the best for sharpness and resolution.

I have looked over the Photozone, SLR gear, Thom Hogan, Photodo and the-Digital-Picture sites and came up with those two.

I would appreciate comparison comments from Nikon users that have used these macros if they agree.
