    Default Newbie wanting to go into macro

    Hi fellows i've just started DSLR like 3 weeks ago and i thought i wanna go macro. Was thinking between 100MM or e 100MM L series. The L series had IS which the non L doesn't. Does IS affect macro photography very much? Thank you all for your advices!

    Hi and welcome to CS ctxx83,
    the IS on the 100mm is not really that great for macro work, can compensate for about 2 stops. It is more useful for normal mid-telephoto shots, can compensate for about 4 stops.

    You can read more about it at http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/...p8_is_usm_c16/

    Do consider 3rd party alternatives such as the all-time favourite tammy 90mm 2.8.
