I've done a search and came up with confusing amounts of The Top Macro lens for super close detail, and also different picks for different body's. I have a 70-D 2nd Gen and have about a grand to spend. It would be great to hear a consensus on a good setup.Ive tried Tubes, and a Macro kit +1 +2 +3 +4 magnifiers
I want to see the Pores on Frogs Face or count the eyes on a Arachnid
Also Has anyone done any Time lapse Macro?

Thanks for the Help.
I am going to Aruba in June And am looking to have my setup complete by then..

Sounds like you need the Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5X.


Equipment list - According to the wife - "how many more lenses do you need? Yet another camera?"  ???

any macro lens will achieve that but if you want to to shoot juvenile springtails you will be better off with the MP-E65 and a good flash system.

Definitely the MP if you want the "best" for ultra-close Macros...

However, that lens is a pretty "specialized" lens, whereas if you want to grab a lens for more general-purpose shooting but that also is an excellent macro lens, well, the Canon 100 f/2.8 IS lens has a great reputation!

Just know that your "general-purpose" macro lenses will allow you to get close and will deliver shots that yield a "1x magnification" of the subject onto the sensor, but the MP will deliver up to a 5x magnification!
