Hello from Switzerland

Hello everybody,

I am, for the moment, interested in macro and trying to decide about the best

but also cheap, if possible, macro lens for my Canon 1100D.

Thanks for your threads on the subject

Re: Hello from Switzerland

Welcome to Pixalo Pier09

A proper macro lens is best, but is also the most expensive. The Tamron SP90 and Sigma 105 are not as expensive as the camera makers lenses and are very good.

Cheaper options are the screw-in lenses (rather like filters) that you can buy in sets and use them one at a time or stack them on the front of your existing lens. This is the cheapest and will get you going. Next up is a Raynox lens. This also fits to the front of your existing lens and I think come in two strengths. I think that the 250 is popular.

Re: Hello from Switzerland

Welcome - if the summer ever arrives you'll find a good selection of macro images posted here.
By the way I use a Tamron 90mm macro and am highly delighted with it
