    I want a nice macro or medium telephoto lens [wide angle for both preferably] for NOT that much money haha. I really like the sigma 150 & 180 but they are kinda pricey.

    What would you all recommend? If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize! Please move it :D

    Well of course I do... I bought it to use while I'm waiting for 600 f1.2 to arrive.

    You didn't mention what camera you have.

    Sounds like you are looking for a Sigmron 10-300 f2.8 Macro or a Canina 5-150 f4, but good luck finding one they are in hot demand.
