QUOTED IMAGE

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!
