Re: Macro Lens with IS?

If IS is important, then forget about "on a budget." The only option is the Canon 100L macro, which will cost you over $1000 (a great lens).

BUT, you can approach this differently - add a close up lens/filter to a lens with IS or use extension tubes on a lens with IS. The former is cheap, simple, and there are some decent add-on lenses available. The latter will give the best images, but with a reduction in light and they can be a little tricky to use.
