Thread: Quick question - What do people use Tamron 90mm & 180mm Macro to shoot?

    Default Quick question - What do people use Tamron 90mm & 180mm Macro to shoot?

    In my understanding people normally use Tamrom 90mm Macro to shoot flowers, wine and food, and use 180mm Macro to shoot extremely tiny subjects e.g. ants, bees, grasshoppers. Am I right?

    nope, both can be used to shoot bugs.

    why do you need a macro lens to shoot wine and food???

    I see, will the bugs be large enough to fit the entire frame when I use 90mm?
    28-135mm lens can used to shoot large items like wine bottles right?

    I see, if it can shoot the eye of a cat, then insects & bugs should be ok. I will buy a 2nd hand
    90mm after I get this month's payslip.

    Thought there are special lens to do each type of shooting. Previously I shot
    landscape and portraits most of the time, but travel is so tiring.

    it depends on the size of the bug, if i am not wrong the tamron 90mm is 1:1 on Film
    so on digital, just factor in the crop factor.

    Choice of lens to shoot wine bottles depends on the image you are trying to create.
