Re: Opinions needed on Macro lens


Thanks for the comments so far, keep them coming.

I'm not concerned with the 3.5 .... thinking f8-f11 or so distance dependent with portaits....

with Macro gonna need to stop down for flowers etc...I assume around f22 or so.

I never considered the skittering bug factor..... So didn't really consider anything longer than the 85mm. I know the 90mm wont be a noticable difference.

I probably won't use AF for macro, most people don't from what I've read/heard.

Not sure if I am getting closer to a decision....stil looking at other Mfrs as well....tokina, tamron included, they all have their pluses and minuses....that just adds to the confusion!

Budgetwise.... $500 thereabouts seems to be the going rate and I really don't want to buy used.
