    Default Macro/Micro photography


    i am planning to move to macro / micro photography. wish to get some tips / advices on the following :

    1) what is the difference between macro and micro lens ?

    2) Sigma 180mm Macro verses 100mm Nikko lens or 60mm Nikkon lens ( F2.8 )

    3) Shorter or longer 'mm' lens ?

    1)macro / micro lens same thing. "micro" is just a name given by nikon for it's macro lens.

    2 & 3) Longer mm gives you a bigger working distance away from the subject to achieve the magnification you want.

    shorter or longer focal length also directly impacts depth of field.
