heya can anyone suggest a good macro lens for the Canon 350D please? thank you...
Well, I've worked with 10D and Tamron SP AF90mm f/2,8 Di Macro ... powerfull lens.
Ooh thats not as badly priced as I had expected. I'm very new to photography so don't know much about the lenses that I need but am told Macro is good for what I like shooting thanks again.
Some good info here:
The section of interest is:
"I want to take closeup photos. What do I need?"
The FAQ mentions 6 options. I would recommend trying out the "cheaper" options before you spend some serious cash on a macro setup. Try a reversing filter ring or some extension tubes. Lighting will always been an issue. Once you've decided that what you are looking for in macro photography, then a ring light paired up with a dedicated macro lens should be your next step.
Anyone know if there's a bellows for Canon EF mount?
In the canon world, only one lens can give you greater than 1x magnification well.... the MP-E 65mm lens. Its very specialized.. expensive and has some real drawbacks that have to be delt with. On top of that, you'll really need a ring macro flash to take advantage of all it has to offer.
Thanks for that link I will have a good read up later
50mm f/1.8 (around $70) + extension tubes (around $90)
