defante, your macro images has me considering purchasing the lens combo you have listed. I am wondering though if I'd be better off applying the dollars towards a 60 or 100 mm macro. Do you have any experience or suggestions?

From a quality perspective can the g12 combo outperform the ef lens?

Thanks and awesome macro images!

Thanks for the compliments. Sorry, I have no experience using macro lenses on DSLR's. I've been pretty happy with my setup so far that I haven't had a desire to look into other options.

Going to a DSLR with those lenses, you would have a better working distance compared to my setup which helps a lot with the more skittish insects. Using both the achromats I listed together give me working distance of about 3" at full telephoto and focused to infinity.

If you're going for 1:1 or really close to it , then I would say the ef lenses would be the way to go.

Since I think quality is subjective, you can compare shots from the G-series macro thread and the dedicated macro section on this forum.

Hey there, I've only just joined the site as we are about to get a EOS 600D (the reason for looking on here). I'm not that experienced and have only been using a G12 for the past 18 months, here are a few of the ones I'm most proud of so far with it.

Sorry if there are too many images!

Yeah the goat could have done some damage, lucky he was behind a wall though.
