    Advice & recommendations for macro.

    Sorry it's been so long between replies, I've been away visiting family but cheers for the suggestions and help! I think I'm drawing towards Canon, I'm interested in wildlife as well as macro but I do like the macro lenses they have available. Having the MPE 65mm, even though it wasn't the deal...

    Advice & recommendations for macro.

    I think trying out a cheaper alternative method would be the way i'd go before spending the a lot more money on the lens itself, the hybrid IS/VR/OS lens is also quite a nice looking option as I do quite a lot of hand held shooting and to counter my movement a little might be helpful although it...

    Advice & recommendations for macro.

    It's a lot of bugs and insects at the moment, I try other things such as plants and flowers but generally I'm a little more interested in the wildlife, I do have a ring flash and but haven't been entirely sure what other lighting to look in to.

    Nikon or Canon, something else or nothing?

    I'm currently have a Nikon 55-200 DX NIKKOR (which I realised fairly quickly wasn't adequate enough for what I wanted) and a Sigma 105mm macro lens. A 300mm lens (maybe even a 400mm plus, i'm not sure but entirely open to consideration) has been something I've been thinking about quite a bit...

    Nikon or Canon, something else or nothing?

    Afternoon everyone. I've been thinking about upgrading my Nikon D3200 at some point (not the immediate future, I need time to save and do homework) and mostly shoot and enjoy wildlife, especially macro. Primarily I'd like advice and recommendations for a camera that would be best suited for...
