Re: Macro Lens Advice

Hi,

For general floral photography a combination of macros around 150-200mm and 50-60mm works best.

1.The "long" macro allows not only for longer working distance,helpful in proper lighting of the subject,but also facilitates isloating a flower/flowers against (nicely) blurred background,to point out the most importat merits.

2.The "short" macro is especially good for close-to-mid-range group floral photos as well as vert small floral details at magnification ratio near 1:1.

If I had to choose only one macro for foral phtography,I would go for the longest focal lenght I could get.
