    Really depends on what you are shooting. If the object is too large, the macro lens might not be able to frame it fully.

    your kit lens.. or macro only if you want to shoot very close ups..

    lighting and a creative mind is more important for product photography..

    cos 2 years ago, not much ppl buy TSEs... FF too expensive...

    besides, Nikon only have 1 TSE on their catalog, the 35mm one is obsolete... left with the trinity TSE from Canon... the other brands all dun have TSEs.
