Re: I would avoid the 50/2.8 - beware of the blue dot

I personally would avoid the 50/2.8 macro original and the RS version (not sure about the D version) due to the possibility for sensor reflection. At certain distances from a subject, usually between 12" to 18", you will sometimes see a blue dot in your images due to sensor reflection (google it).

Not a problem with my 50mm D macro. But part of that is where I use the 50mm instead of the 100mm D macro. It's in places where there is little working room available, a good part of those shots are indoors, and indoors or out they tend to be where spare light is scarce.

The 100mm does get used a lot more than the 50mm, however.
