There was nothing to do today evening. I was so bored thought i'd take my glitter and water drop bottle out and experiment, achieved this with some cheapo plastic extension tubes and my macro lens. <3

I had some dead roses lying around, took them out and some feathers with drops covered in glitter.

A question if anyone can help, my images came out quite noisy because of very low light, does anyone know how I can get rid of the noise?

Thanks.

I'm a newcomer to DSLR's with only about 2 months with my 60D.

I take a lot of pictures of my 3 month old, usually I use a 50/1.8 which is giving me some great pictures at 3-4 feet distance. But I'm often down on the floor or up close and I get, what I think is something between really soft focus and out of focus fairly consistently using AF (guessing I'm 2 feet or less from focus point. I'm moving back until the AF will grab a focal point. I can't really use a longer lens at a greater distance if I want to get a good angle.

The 50mm claims a minimum 1.5 ft focal distance I think and so it may just be my inexperience showing up here, but I've been wondering whether the 60mm with its minimum focal distance of .66 feet would give me a little more breathing room.

I doubt I would be unhappy with the lens giving what I see in this thread and elsewhere, but would it help with my immediate situation? Or is this just my inexperience?

Just wondering.

Not sure to be honest. Remember that even if the 50 focussed down to the 60s range, you will be further away with the 60 for the same framing (crop factor) - which, is a long way (realtively based on what it is you are doing).

You could of course use manual focus ;)

Generally speaking, I have no issue using my nifty fifty over the 60mm if the situation warrants it (in other words if there isn't room and I need a slightly wider shot) - the 60 does beat the fifty for IQ, but at least for my purposes using the fifty isn't a deal breaker.

I agree about the iq of this lens but if your not using any moor then maybe someone else can benefit. I got my lens second hand and for a good price (like new) :)

im getting a 17-50 either way but getting rid of the macro puts me in range to either make it vc/os or get the non vc/os and a used uwa or a 85 1.8.

i really do love this lens tho. im as non creative as they come and only see whats infront of me... this lens seems to do the creative work for me lol 90% of my favorite photos up untill i got the 200L were taken with the 60mm macro. hopefully i'll find a way to get what i want without getting rid of it. even if i dont use it much anymore i still feel a strong attachment to it

Please, I am looking to purchase a lens for 50:50 macro : portrait, I can see this is a very good macro lens, what about for portraits too? I like a smooth bokeh and shallow DOF for portriats, I have read about alot of Vignetting at F2.8, and this is the kind of DOF i would like for my portraits. I an't afford 2 lenses. Would I get the same quality portraits as with the 50mm 1.8 or better IQ with the macro? I am also considering Tamron 60mm F2 macro, for the F2?

Please, I am looking to purchase a lens for 50:50 macro : portrait, I can see this is a very good macro lens, what about for portraits too? I like a smooth bokeh and shallow DOF for portriats, I have read about alot of Vignetting at F2.8, and this is the kind of DOF i would like for my portraits. I an't afford 2 lenses. Would I get the same quality portraits as with the 50mm 1.8 or better IQ with the macro? I am also considering Tamron 60mm F2 macro, for the F2?

Hi, this lens will be perfect if you intend to shoot head & shoulder portraits only, and Candis shots of the kids, works out to be about 96mm fl on the 550d's body or any 1.6x FOVCF ;)

Could I use it instead of the 50 F1.8? how does bokeh compare? AF accuracy and speed?

Hi, bokeh not a problem, for portraits leave about a minimum of 5 foot between subject and background or backdrop. look at some reviews on this lens and sample shots of portraits, I think you will be surprised how good this lens is.
AF speed and focus lock is spot on, although I mainly use MF for macro but that's just my preference.
At the end of the day this is a fast f/2.8 60mm lens ;)
I'm not really into portrait work so please do some more research :)
From what I have seen this is a true macro that takes awesome head & shoulder portraits and I will never sell the one I have :D
