    Hello,

    I still think about buying myself a macro lens for my Canon 350D.
    At the moment I think about the Canon 60mm Macro.

    Any experiences with that lens, other suggestions?
    Pros and Cons?

    What (and why) would you buy?

    CU

  2. No experience with that lens. Here is a test shot with a Sigma 105 mm
    macro:

    In message <[email protected]>,
    It was clearly sharp enough to get aliased results. Let me guess; Sigma
    DSLR?

    You know, a mild AA filter is all that is needed without the bayer
    filter pattern. It's a shame they decided to leave it out.

    I bought the 100 mm Canon. Kind of wish I had the 60 instead. For
    35mm work I got used to 90/100 mm, for the digital with the crop
    factor I find that I have to get too far away, I'm always moving back.
    Just what I got used to.


    the lens is great as far as I can tell.
