I don't normally ask these questions, as they all seem to have been asked at one time or another, but I seem to be in a bit of a bind, choosing between two lenses that aren't normally cross-shopped, it seems (at least, that's what my searches have turned up).
I would like to add a longer portrait prime to my bag, and right now, I'm stuck between the Canon 85mm f/1.8 and the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro. I litterally can't decide, and every time I think I have, I'll go back the other way for some reason.
I know they both take goregeous pictures, but I guess I'm wondering if I'll miss the f/1.8 if I go with the Tamron, or if I'll get frustrated by the long MFD if I go with the Canon. It's not that I take Macro shots much (I mainly dabble with some extension tubes), but I have a tendency to get fairly close to the subject, which the Canon doesn't seem to like as much.
For reference, the other lenses in my bag competing for that range are a Sigma 70-300 APO and Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Macro.
Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks in advance for the replies!
