    for close-up & portraits shooting only, EX25 is not required.
    Unless you are interested in macro photography - shooting of insects like spiders etc.
    The combination of EX25 and 50mm macro lens will give you an extended maximum image magnification; 0.98 times.

    I still need a good external flash for indoor portraits and outdoor fill flashes. Artificial directional lighting can really change the mood or bring out the 3D details. The in-built 13GN flash is not good enough.

    With the lens, you still can shoot without a flash. Without a lens, you can't shoot photos. This is shot with an F2 lens this morning.

    u dun shoot wide open all the time though, especially for macro shots, you'll generally step down to get a deeper depth of field.
