Macro prime or stick with the 16-80 ZA
Feb 21, 2013

HI

I'm struggling whether i should get a macro lens or no.

Recently I'm shooting more and more food and culinary stuff. I have to say I'm happy with my A65 + ZA 16-80

the question is what a macro lens would change? The ZA 16-80 focuses from 0.35 and I can have decent enlargements with it. the lens is also very sharp. so if i take one of the following lenses

SONY 50/2,8 macro

SONY 30/2,8 macro

SIGMA SUPERCLASS MACRO 50/2,8 (current EX)

Do you think it is worth going macro prime or keep on using the ZA 16-80.

Thanks

Idir
