I have recently treated myself to the Canon 600D, my last camera was a Fuji Finepix S100FS.
I got the Canon 18-55mm IS II and 55-250mm IS II lenses with the camera but want a lenses that I can use for macro. I love taking macro shots and will try almost anything on macro to see the interesting result I get (the next one is try find a willing volunteer to take close ups of the human eye).
I have seen on the forum a recommendation for the Tamron 90mm lens. I have found this one on amazon as well as a Sigma 50mm lens here. I don't kow which one to go for, please help!!
Are the extension tubes a good investment or just a waste of time, I have heard mixed reviews. I am used to getting up close and personal with my subjects with my fuji (could get as close as 1cm). I know with the macro lenses you don't have to which is a good thing as I have scared away some of my subjects in the past.
I appreciate any help/advice/recommendations anyone can give.
