Re: 50mm 1.8 for macro?

Yes it can. However, you will probably find that you have to get very close to the subject - maybe almost touching it. That is the disadvantage that comes with a 50mm focal length. Longer focal length lenses (85/90 mm, 105mm, 150mm) allow you to stand back further from the subject.
