I couldn't find a way to delete this post, so please disregard. Thanks!
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.)
I don't wanna disregard this post. What was the OP?
Its in the beginner's area. No need to continue here as that post is there and answered a couple times already.
