Macro! Just in case you missed it...

re: #1 Rightwingconspirator

Heh, I can hardly wait for the weekend so I can play with it uninterrupted. It’s the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens. Canon’s got a rebate going on right now, so I couldn’t resist buying something.

Now I’m seriously considering selling the 85mm f/1.8. I don’t really need both, y’know? For general/portrait use there’s not much difference in focal length, and the 85mm has CA/purple fringing issues in high contrast areas. Sure, you can step up the aperture to get around it, but that kinda kills the benefit of having a fast lens. Plus, it’s lacking macro.
