Getting a macro lens, need help deciding
I am getting a macro lens for my A100. I have been looking around and the lenses in my pricerange are the Sony 50mm f/2.8 ($429) and Tamron 90mm f/2.8 ($399). There is also the Sony 100mm f/2.8 but it is a little too expensive for me ($619).
Which one should I choose?
Ahhhh... the killer MACRO
You want a macro that will allow you be far enough away to not scare the bugs? There is a serious one out there for a fair price.
The TAMRON SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) 1:1 Macro <- Click here
I got myself the Sigma 105mm EX DG
The Tamron 90mm has raving reviews everywhere. So there's come the issue; the competition: The Sigma 105mm EX DG macro. After reviewng the tecnical specs it could go anywhere between these two for me. It was a matter of availability/price at the time I bought it. So the Sigma won for me. I can only tell you the images will blow you away with a clarity and sharpness that I do not think you've seen so far.
But either way you go I don't think you'll go wrong.
