Been thinking of trying out macro but don't think that i will do it extensively. Will likely balance the rest of the photo shoot with portrait. I am thinking of two options:-
1. EF 100 mm F 2.8 Macro and double up as a portrait lens
Pro: dedicated marco lens
Con: read that it may be slow in term of focusing for infinity
cost: new S$ 730 - used at CS ard S$ 600
2. EF 85 mm F 1.8 and add extension tube for macro
Pro: dedicated portrait (in a sense)
tube can be used with my 50mm F1.8 if needed
con: not sure how's the IQ and AF when doing macro.
Cost: used @ CS S$ 420 + tube S$ 120 = S$ 640
3. Any other option.
