    I just finished the journey you are currently on.

    Decide on what type of shots you want. If you just need product shots, a 50mm is fine. Trying to get bugs with a 50mm will ensure you scare them away because you are so close.

    You could go for a 200mm, and get GREAT bug shots, but they cost an arm and a leg.

    So that leaves the 90-105mm range. And from my research, there are only 2 real choices here for build and quality; the Sony 100mm or the Tamron 90mm. Not super cheap, but you get what you pay for in glass.

    I was exploring the used market on some great Minolta glass and would have easily bought one, but nothing was on the market in the short time I needed to make the purchase.

    I ended-up buying the Sony 100mm and am quite happy with it.

    Happy hunting.

    Cheers!
