Hi guys I have a Canon 5D and I usually do weddings, events, portraits etc, so my lenses very much reflect that (85mm 1.2, 50mm 1.4, 24mm 1.4 and 70-200 2.8). A friend has put me in touch with a guy who owns a jewellery shop and who wants photos done of his jewellery. Now at this stage I am not sure of the exact nature of the job, and it is possible this may all fall through, but I want to be ready should it happen. There is the possibility there will be regular work, maybe once a week or so. I have never done this sort of thing before - I am not especially worried, I will have plenty of time to perfect it, and the previous photographers he has paid to do it haven't produced anything stunning. But I don't have a dedicated macro lens to I am looking to make an investment. I have the attitude that if you are going to do something you may as well do it properly, so I am willing to shell out for a good lens (obviously I wouldn't do it until I knew the work was going to happen). Does anyone regularly shoot this sort of thing and have any recommendations? I have been looking at the Canon MP-E 65mm, the 100mm 2.8 and wincing at the price of the 180mm. But then I was reading somewhere that sometimes people went with tilt-shift lenses for jewellery. Are there any other lenses anyone would recommend? And does anyone have any thoughts on the tilt shift (I must admit I have always fancies trying one, but I never realised they could also be used for macro) Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
