Hi, the mod team have decided there are so many new lenses since the old poll started we decided it was best to re-launch the poll with a more inclusive lens list.

The poll has been setup with the maximum (10) choices and the maximum number of re-choices (5) to allow more flexibility.

Don't worry the old poll is still readable here http://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17564348.

I hope you all enjoy the new poll.

Update: New lenses will be added as needed, PM me.

Good idea - the old list was.. well, pretty old. This should give a much better idea of what the actual current usage is.

I selected 7 off the list that we use and own. However our Lumix 30mm was not listed.

Short macro lenses work fine on a copy stand and for slide conversion to digital. I also like them for a trip to the gardens. I voted for the Sigma 50 F2.8 macro and the Tokina 35F2.8 macro for crop.

Very best,

Hi is that the Tamron 90 mm F/2.8 DI MACRO VC USD, I guess that is different from the Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro.
