Hi guys, (This is a repost as someone suggested I post this in macro forum instead...) I just bought my first macro lens for my Cankn 5D Mark II. I bought the Canon 100mm Macro 2.8 USM (not the L series version, the cheaper one). Im wanting a recommendation for an inexpensive flash that will work well on this setup for doing some macro photography, as I’ve heard that having the option of extra light may help with getting sharp and clear macro shots. I have bigger studio monolights such as the...

Hello, I am considering switching from Canon 5D M IV to Sony A7 RIII on condition that I can use my professional Canon EF lenses (wide standard - tele- portrait). Does anyone have experience which type of adapter performs the best and has relevant experience with it? Thanks in advance for your input, Lieven

I have been very happy with the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro on my 7D, but after having bought the R, I need a FF replacement. I have the EF-RF adapter that came bundled with my R and I expect that once Canon makes an RF longish macro lens, it will be eye watering expensive and a severe overmatch for my needs. The EF 100mm f/2.8 macro (non L) ticks the boxes I could come to think of, and can be had used for roughly the same I paid second hand for my EF-S macro, so what I ask of you is why I should...

Hey, After my research, I am thinking of buying a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM IS Macro Lens (not L) + Sigma MC11for my Sony A7m2. Does anyone has experience with the old Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens? The L model is expensive, I can only afford the old one but not sure if it works well with Sony E Mount. Thank you in advance. m.j

Hello all and thank you for any responses: I currently own the 50D and don't plan on upgrading to full frame in the next 10 years. I own the 10-18 stm, have the 18-135mm IS but plan swapping out for the tamron 17-50 XR di II f/2.8, have the 55-250 stm, and the 50mm f/1.8, and I do have a macro extension tube set. I am mostly interested in people (portraits), landscape, low-light (indoor sports/shows/parties), macro, and wildlife. I currently use the 50mm f/1.8 for portraits and any low-light...

So I am in the market for another lens. This time a 100mm. I am sure there are tons of you that have experience with 100mm lenses. So I don't plan on shooting macro with this glass since I plan on buying a 60mm macro for that. So my question is which is the better glass out of the 100mm f/2 or & the 100mm f2.8 (NON L lens) from user experience? Thank you a bunch. (image examples would be cool too :p) Going to be using for portrait and a medium walk around telephoto lens. - A newbie.

Hi, I am looking to buy a Macro lens to shoot food for my new Canon EOS 70D. There are so many options and the prices are so high, that I really need advise on the right one so that I make the right decision. I plan to shoot a lot of close ups of food, including wedding cakes, bread, pies, etc.. All help and advise will be so welcome. Thanks,

I have a Canon Rebel T2i and for many years I have been content shooting with my EF 50mm f/1.4 USM and my EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro. I do have the EF-S 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS lens that came with the body but I have stopped using it. In the past year or so I have started using Adobe Lightroom for editing and I have become more critical of my work. I stopped using the 18-55 as I understand it is a poorer quality lens and image quality is important to me. I shoot mostly macro nature shots, portraits...

The gear i have now: Canon eos 350d (rebel xt) Sigma 18-200 DC 3,5/6.3 Canon ef 100mm macro USM (non L version) I also have a light stand and a multi-purpose umbrella with a Speedlite 580ex first gen. I shoot a wide variety of things, from macro to portraits to events to high speed, but I'm still a starting photographer. I'd love to have a new camera, but maybe a new lens would benefit me more. I am willing to spend up to about 1500€ (something like 2000 dollars or 1300 pounds) A good...

Shooting with a Canon 7D.I am just learning food and product photography. I first ordered the Canon (non L glass) 100mm. I love the results but I have to back so far away from the table. It is especially problematic when doing overhead shots when I want to get in a full plate.So I am now trying the Sigma 17-70mm. I love the versatility of the zoom but even after a few shots it feels like I'd get lens creep at some point. That has happened with another Sigma zoom lens of mine and it is way...
