    Hi guys,

    I have a Canon t1i with 3 lenses - 10-22, 24-70L, 70-200L. Some lighting, tripod etc... I'd really like to take a high res picture of an eyeball, but micro photography is something I have zero experience with.

    Any pointers what kind of lens I would need or could I get the shot with one of the ones I have?

    Thanks!

    You should get yourself a Macro lens with a 1:1 magnification.. the Sigma 150 is really sharp, so is the Tamron 90mm.. both lenses are very crisp and sharp!

    You know I was thinking of getting tubes for a while now but i'm quite hesitant (only due to my own ignorance). Gotta do a little more research. Nice picture none the less.

    Who's eye is that? Very rarely do I see someone with the aqua/orange eye colors above. And its always very striking.

    I like the image but I think it needs some fill from the right.
