Re: Sony 90mm G Macro vs Voigtlander 110mm Macro APO

Hello, I've got the 90mm Macro together with a sony A7. It's a great lens, nevertheless in my opinion autofocus and stabilization are both not required for macrophotography. Normally you set the desired range or magnification before coming near your object. For sharpness you just move your camera in and out until you got the sharpness correct, then press your shutter. Concerning stabilization, for really closeups on insects most photographers use a flash with a home made diffusor. Then you can have 1/20 sec or more shutterspeed to prevent black background. The very short flash duration (usually around 1/1000 sec) will get your object sharp even without stabilization. For landscape photography I recommend to use a tripod and switching stabilization off. Cheers
