I once did portrait work, but have since invested my time and money in telephotography. However, the macro shots I see on WordPress are so impressive that I am tempted to buy a lens and try it out. Money has always been the prime consideration so I had to make a choice between macro/micro and tele. A dedicated macro lens can be expensive, but it most likely will produce images that are superior to a kit lens.
All-in-one lenses (for example, 18-250mm) often display barrel distortion or chromatic aberration; and even though they might be used for macro-tele photography the results can be underwhelming — not wide enough on the micro end nor crisp enough at length.
I spend two hours a day researching gear, comparing photos and specifications — and I still don’t have a clue. What camera and lens do you use for macro work? Please share in the comment section.
