    In the "Photo Galleries" section of the forum, would it be possible to add a Macro forum?

    I think there is enough macro work on here to justify it having it's own special place...

    I think that's a great idea. I have been thinking about buying one, and if there were a specific forum that would be awesome.

    You should get one. It will open up a whole new world to you.
    And, BTW, you can still use it for non-marco things as well.

    The trouble is, Macro forums only benefit Canon shooters because Nikon basically ignores the macro lens market. :x

    Nikon has a few macro lenses, don't they?

    Even if they don't - there's enough Canon shooters on here to make it worthwhile.

    There was a thread not too long ago about this. A lot of people agreed, but it seems to have been largely ignored by the Powers That Be. I would definitely put in a vote for a macro section.



    :er:

    Probably one of the best macros ever made.....

    yah we did this a while ago- sadly I think the site owners never got things moving - another try is never bad :)

    as for canon and nikon -bah Canon only has the MPE65mm nicness - and so far I don't recall any TPF memebers owning that lens (least I haven't seen many shots with it here) and plus Nikon have one of the best flash setups ever - gah I am jealous of you twinlights - where you can just ad more and more lights!

    And besides - aside from the MPE for silly macro stuffs any good macro shooter uses a sigma lens anyway ;)

    course if Canon made a macro lens with IS (or VR for nikon heads) gah it would be a dream!

    EDIT !!!!!!! gah when did you get so good with that lens -- fantastic shot!

    Yeah... You might want to think about jumping ship and switching to Canon like everyone else...

    Maybe they'll check in on their forum this time...
    I haven't seen a mod or admin on all day...
    ...One day.

    I still kick myself for letting someone talk me out of it...


    I WILL have it by Christmas...

    Sometimes people with Sony's actually shoot macros too. A nice little lens called a Sigma 105mm.
