Early in my acclimation to GG, an individual suggested that I "wait to buy new glass until I figured out what I was missing." Fighting the urge to buy new toys has been tough, but I have discovered a hole in the arsenal.
A friend has approached me to shoot some images for an article that he is writing on...of all things...spiders. Not my first choice of subjects, but work is work, The problem is that I do not have a Macro in my bag, and really don't know which direction to go. I'm looking at the Canon EF series (to go on my 1Ds) and have persued Samy's a bit, and am trying to determine whether I should be looking at a lens like the 100 mm f/ 2.8 or the 50 mm f/ 2.5. Or is there something else that I'm missing?
I've thought about buying one for a while now and jsut never had a good reason, so I don't mind buying quality glass.
Thanks in advance for your insight.
My goal in life is to rid the world of ignorance...mainly my own.
