Macro lens for bugs: 90/100 vs 150/180
I'd like to enter the world of macrophotography, and I was wondering about the differences between the 90-105 lenses and 150 or 180 lenses.
I'd like to shoot insects, and I know that a 150 or a 180 can give me more working distance than a 100, which can be very useful for living subjects. The long lenses however are quite big and heavy and (I guess) less suitable for handheld use, and less versatile for a non-macro use (a 100 for example can be also a good mid tele lens).
So my question basically is: can a 90/100/105 lens be easily used for bug shots or is a 150/180 definitely better?
Thanks in advance for your advices.
Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say... no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh... depended on the breaks.
