Very glad to see this addition! I've recently become interested in macro and looking for most useful glass for this purpose. Using a Canon 50D. Want 1:1...maybe 100mm 2.8?

I would probably recommend the lens you suggested. That's the only one I have ever used for macro on a dslr and I've had it for 7 years now......wow, how time flies. When I shot more macro in the wild I kind of wished I would have gotten the Sigma 180mm so I wouldn't have to get so close, but now that I shoot more indoors I'm glad I picked the 100mm.

Excellent. Thanks Giesle. Got good advice from Precarious also. Currently own Tamron's 70-200mm maco, but don't know if it will work nearly as well. That lens' ratio = 1:3.1. Will store test the Canon 100 once this Sandy thing blows through.

I guess I'm still a month behind everything! Good to see the new section. Will have to post some tutorials.

Mr. Precarious, just give us a 101 tutorial, that is for beginners.
