    The longer the focal length the more expensive the lens. The minimum focus distance ranges from 7.5" (50mm) to 15" (150mm).

    Personally, I have the Sigma 70mm macro and am really impressed with it. For $429, it does a nice job and it's sharp as a tack. Plus the focal length makes it useful for portraits as well. Generally, if you are shooting a skiddish subject, you want a longer focal length like the 150 to give things like butterflies a little breathing room.

    Thank you for the response! That definitely helps me figure out which direction to head in.

    (I'm going to try to re-post this in the Beginner's Place forum as well.)

    Its in the beginner's area. No need to continue here as that post is there and answered a couple times already.
