I use enlarging lenses - due to cost.

This is an article on using them.

I own two macro lenses ...

Canon 100mm IS L Macro
Tamron 180mm Macro

I've used both to shoot jewelry for several antique dealers with great success. Income from those jobs covered the costs of the lenses. Both are 1:1 macro lenses. I am now looking at getting the MP-E 65mm for it's 1x-5x range.

I like the 100mm macro - I have the non L for photographing watches.
