da35 2.8 / d-fa 100

Hi All

I'm interested in getting a lens for macro photography but know very little about it! My GF is very much interested in the macro world but only as a Tamron 70-300.

I see wonderful reviews about both these lenses but not sure what I should be thinking about, i.e. minimum distance to subject and any other factors I'm oblivious to.

Apart from macro, I'm looking to expand beyond my wonderful DA15 (and kit lens) for landscape work but it's one or the other at the moment. I've just noticed the DA35 for GBP 385 on one site whereas it seems to retail for GBP 430 elsewhere. The 100mm is about GBP 480 on one site and GBP 530 elsewhere

Thanks in advance for any insights
