I'm building a camera setup for residency. We are required to use the following parts
Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Flash
Nikon Nikkor AF 105 Macro lens
I've priced these items on adorama.com for $1890 and that includes a 3 year warranty. I've been looking around and obviously can find the parts cheaper on various websites but without knowing condition, warranty, use/abuse. Although this is a required purchase I would like to be cautious on spending and on needing to get something repaired should I by a Lemon.
Also I would like a Lens that can be used for personal photography in addition to this setup. Any recommendations appreciated.
I appreciate any and all advice regarding my future purchase. Thank you for your time
