    What are 18-55mm EF-S lenses good for?

    It will not produce a true 1:1, so it is not a macro lens. It will get as close as 9.8".

    Going macro with canon

    Oh I completely agree! There is no way I would hand my 65mm to a new macro shooter. It inspires frustration in me, and I know what it is capable of and how to use it (somewhat). :)

    Going macro with canon

    I think you just fail to see that the 100mm is a great lens. It's MTF figures are higher than both of those other Sigma's AND the 180mm f/3.5L. I have yet to find a bug that I can't get close enough too to shoot at 1:1 or so. Now ..... the MP-E 1x-5x is a whole other story.

    Going macro with canon

    I would go with the 150mm, it gets much better reviews than 180mm. If you want to shoot insects, I can guarantee that you are going to want to shoot in the f/11 range, because of the shallowness of the DOF at 1:1.

    Aperture vs. Lightroom

    Both have free trials. Download them and see which one you like better. I personally chose Lightroom, but thats just me. :)

    Surf & Landscape

    Great shot! I feel like it conveys a true love of the sport (being that it looks absolutely freezing there .... and we complain here in Florida and wear wetsuits ... lol).

    Going macro with canon

    The Sigma does give you a longer working distance (about 3 inches longer). But this made me a little nervous when I read it: Probably just a fluke, but still makes me nervous. I was looking to pick one up in addition to my 100mm, but decided to spend the money on a macro friendly tripod...

    Any ideas for a camera bag that doesn't look like a camera bag

    I use a Crumpler bag. Just looks like a normal shoulder bag to most people.

    Going macro with canon

    I don't know about the 60mm, but the 180L has LOWER resolution figures than the 100mm. The 100 is FREAKISHLY sharp and an excellent lens. I find it has plenty of working distance, even for most jumpy subjects. Eventually I would reccomend a ring light or an off-camera flash setup. While...

    A nice long list of photography related questions

    How often do you use your tripod, and what do you use it for? About 40% of the time I guess. If the subject is being nice and not moving then I will try to get the tripod out so I can focus stack easier. What do you think is the most important piece of kit to own and why. Besides camera...

    I Have Pollen In My Eye

    Its a great shot, but I would try and lighten up the wasp a little bit. Seems a little on the dark side.
