Re: Macro Lens on Budget

Yes the Canon 100mm f/2.8 non-L is a winner. It was the first lens I bought when I got my Rebel in 2008, and it's still one of my favorite lenses.  I've felt no need to upgrade to the 100L, even though I now have 6 different L lenses.

Stabilization might be nice, sure, but not needed in sunlight, or even bright cloudy days if you increase your ISO a bit.  Indoors, yeah that will be a problem unless you use a tripod.

I also sometimes put a Raynox 2.5X extra magnification lens on the end of the 100 for "super macro".

If it's a *Single* Lens Reflex, why do I need so many lenses?
