Re: Macro Lens on Budget

The older Sigma and Tamron lenses had slow autofocus. If you only shoot macro in manual focus (true for many people, and the best option for some macro shots), this isn't a problem. But I've chased bees between flowers using the Canon 100 (non-L) macro lens, relying on the autofocus to track the quicky moving subjects.
