ohhhh.. then i think i might consider the 100mm macro.. but i have some concerns with that lens..
1 - i see ppl say u need flash to take macro photos.. (which i dont wanna get yet..budget issues)
2 - there is no IS, and i want to do handheld shooting... so im not sure if this will be an issue
3 - its prime.. im not sure if this will matter to me.. becuase im still relatively new to photography.. (this will be my first lens)
3. Real photographers use primes ... Ok, back to reality, the prime lens usually has a higher optical quality over a zoom lens.
