    100-105 is nice for portrait shoot too (human i mean).

    But i sold it twice, after i got my 85 mm f1.4.

    Anyway, i find the 105 can't go too close for insects close-up also. I am those that prefer "portraits" of insects.

    I mean, i find, stacking magnifying optics or use of extension tube on a shorter lens a bit of a hassle.

    And if i need to take a full body, i may be able to move back to take also.

    But again, i don't have sufficient experience to say which is better also.

    Hmm thanks for sharing! Yeah 100 is more versatile that's why i'm leaning close to 100 and if i really need the reach, till then i slowly save up again for 180.

    But wth am i saying? I now flash also don't have. Pfft...i think too far ahead liao.

    With a 180mm, you can't handhold it. So you'll need a good tripod and flash set-up.

    For a start, you can go cheap and get the Tamron 90mm first, it's about $600++ Then add a flash, this set-up would be able to shoot most of the subjects decently.

    When you have more moolah, then get the 180 with a tripod and mebbe one more flash and flash arms...

    100mm range more flexibility, can use for other purpose ie portraits. 180mm will be specialized dedicated for macro, of coz 180mm will give better working distance and isolation of subject, cleaner background. 180mm definitely need to be on tripod... see how serious you are into it.

    Ya, cos with 100, may need the extension tube etc, which i am personally lazy to use.

    And human portrait, nothing beats 85mm f1.4, 135 f2, 200 f2 (if you can handhold) and 300 f2.8.
    *All personal preference, don't come shoot me.
