    Default Which Macro Lens?

    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

    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
