    at 90mm, you'd be too far away if you need to get the whole plate into the pic...

    60mm cos from my experience even if food that lay on a large round plate/etc 1-2 step back is needed( compare the point to average range/size plates/etc used). Hope you can understand what I'm saying
    Anything that can take pictures...happy already lor...(..but...Hasselblad_H5D-50 as my Workhorse)

    Have you considered Voigtlander 125mm/f2 Macro? nice macro and portrait lens, pay a little more get 2 in 1 (macro and portraiture lens). $920 is not too bad a price.

    Getting mine tonight. Manual lens though but if you are into macro you almost have to shoot manual right unless shooting still objects.
