so, i am considering buying a new lens for small product stuff. i got OK results with my 50, and 70-200, but they could be better. i have been reading around a lot, and have read through the old threads on here, which gave me some ideas, but also raised more questions
i am taking pictures of small stuff 5mm across up to around 20cm.
here is what i am thinking so far as a result of what i have read:
60mm micro nikkor - affordable, but you have to be really close up to the stuff - might make lighting more difficult
105mm micro nikkor - gets to f57 so would help to get more of the product in focus
85mm pce / 90mm schneider = more depth of field and more control
would you say that my opinions on the above are correct? and what lens would you guys recommend, and why? are there any lenses i should be considering that i havent mentioned above?
please tell me what you would buy, and why? and id love to see some examples if you have any .....
