    I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on either a 70mm or 90mm macro for my crop sensor. Something about taking magnified pictures of weird Florida bugs intrigues me.

  4. @Kurtz: I used to used a Sigma 50mm 2.8 but once I basically wore it out (autofocus stopped working) I bought the Tokina 100mm 2.8 (which I used here). I have been quite happy with it.
