Re: Macro Lens

Onestop-Digital are always a good bet if you need to save cash... They're Hong Kong based but all lenses still come with warranty and they refund you any import charges you may incur.

There are several threads on the forums with alot of praise for them, I've personally always been happy.

Re: Macro Lens

No doubt they give very good service. I certainly stick with them, and they are cheaper then a lot of hongkong sellers.

Re: Macro Lens

The longer the better since it means you can operate further away. What is your budget? the Sigma 105 macro and Tamron 90 are both excellent optically.
