Re: Opinions needed on Macro lens
In reply to Opfoto, Jan 29, 2013

Everyone,

Thanks for the comments so far, keep them coming.

I'm not concerned with the 3.5 .... thinking f8-f11 or so distance dependent with portaits....

with Macro gonna need to stop down for flowers etc...I assume around f22 or so.

I never considered the skittering bug factor..... So didn't really consider anything longer than the 85mm. I know the 90mm wont be a noticable difference.

I probably won't use AF for macro, most people don't from what I've read/heard.

Not sure if I am getting closer to a decision....stil looking at other Mfrs as well....tokina, tamron included, they all have their pluses and minuses....that just adds to the confusion!

Budgetwise.... $500 thereabouts seems to be the going rate and I really don't want to buy used.
