Anyone know a good macro lens for a Canon EOS 70D?
Provided you know what you are looking for. We have a camera we used for three years that took okay photos. Looked just fine to us. A lens expert took a glance at it one day and remarked the lens had a flaw. Took him all of a half second to spot it.Another thing is don't be afraid of used lenses you can get some really good deals on uses equipment.
Does the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro fit the Canon EOS 70D perfectly?If money is not important, then the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro would be great, but if money is important (like it usually is) then the tamron 90mm 2.8 (old version) and the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM are good. Another thing is don't be afraid of used lenses you can get some really good deals on uses equipment.
That is the lens I use for all my micro shots I've posted here. I've shot both before I bought and personally couldn't tell the difference between the L lens and the regular.Yes and there's also a 100mm f2.8 non L lens that's alot cheaper if you're looking to spend a little less. It's just as good, just not quite as durable as an L lens.
You'll like it. The IS is nice but wasn't really worth the extra cost to me. They have came down a lot in price since I was shopping for one though so it's not too bad.Think I'm going to go with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro. Thanks for the help!
I have a ring light for a lot of micro photography. It can flash or constant light. I don't use anything but constant light (soft box) when photographing Ts though. Regular flashes makes them flighty which is a pain the constant light doesn't cause that to happen as bad.Also keep in mind that a good flash+diffuser is really useful when doing macro stuff.
So, it looks like I am a little late to the party in order to offer you pre-purchase advise. However, I wanted to give you some information for any future photography purchases you may want to make!Well, looks like I won't be getting a new firearm any time soon. I used the money I saved for the gun to purchase the lens. Totally worth it in my opinion. Stay tuned for great pictures to come!
