Whats the difference between tele-zoom macro and prime macro?
Jul 30, 2012

Hello,

I wonder why I should get a prime macro of Canon EF 100mm Macro (for example) instead of getting a multifunctional lens which can do both Macro and other purposes photography such as a Sigma lens = 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG IF Macro Aspherical Lens for Canon SLR Cameras.....???????!

Nevertheless, I totally understand that fixed/prime lenses are clearer and gives you a better picture quality, but if I'm not too fussy, would you please advise? i'm simply interested in the range that the sigma provides, AND def. the price as well is a concern.. but if price was NOT a concern, I'd still want your advise!?

Many thanks experts!
Abraham.
