I'm looking to get an inexpensive 1:1 macro lens.
So far, I think I've narrowed it down to:
Canon 100 f/2.8
Sigma 70 f/2.8
both are about $500 new, f/2.8, 1:1
I'm not too worried about working distance - I prefer closer. The canon is USM, I know the Sigma is not but i'm not sure if it's terribly noisy.
Would I be better off spending more and getting an OS/IS macro lens instead? I'd likely be using this outdoors or with flash and I DO NOT have a steady hand
Any first-hand experience would be appreciated!
