Hi

Looking for some advice on which macro lens to go for my canon 500D.

I've been looking at trading in my canon 50mm f1.8 and going for the canon ef-s 60mm f2.8 macro, or keeping my canon 50mm lens and getting the tamron 90mm macro.

I mainly want the lens for photographing flowers and maybe some creepy crawlies.

Thanks

Natalie :)

The 60mm is fine for flowers but you will find the Tamron 90mm or the Sigma 105mm will give you a greater working distance for the crawlies so you dont frighten them away so quickly.
Also try and keep the 50mm f/1.8 its a cracking lens.

Decided to go for the Tokina 100mm as it gets good reviews on here.

thanks
