Hi, this is my first post to this forum. It is nice to meet you all.
I have been using my Canon 20D with a Canon 17-85 USM IS for landscapes etc.. but now I want to include shooting some food dishes and People portraits.
What is the best macro lens for this?
Max. Budget = £500 (I'm based in the UK) (about US$800)
I have identified these lenses (not much available) what do you think? (20D 1.6x CCD obviously!)
Canon EF50mm f1.4 USM (I feel this maybe a good choice over magnification and DOF (bokh)
Sigma 30mm f1.4 EX DC HSM (concerned over lack of magnification maybe?)
Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro (maybe not fast enough??)
Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG APO Macro (72mm) (overkill for product/food photography?)
Constructive opinions required please
Thank you in advance.
