Hi Iím having trouble to decide which lens to buy for macro.
I have heard some say that no necessary to buy a macro lens to shoot insect or plant .Can use telephoto lens to shot macro too by add ext tubes.
What about the sharpness and the quality. Which is better?
By comparing with 180mm sigma macro, the 50-500mm sigma or 70-200mm. which one would you recommends.
True macro lens can reach 1:1 ratio .Is it very important, and what do you mean by reaching 1:1 ratio?
Can 50-500m do so by zooming to 500mm to the same subject.
Which is better?
