Hi!
I'm having a terrible time deciding on my next prime.
I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Canon 100mm f/2 (Non-macro) or the EF-s 60mm Macro, but choosing which one is a pain.
Several things speak for the 60mm, it has a more suitable focal length, the possibility of shooting macro, and it's probably sharper too.
The 100mm is also very tempting though, with a wider aperture & faster focusing.
I'm not planning on going full frame, so that's no issue. Also as I'm not that much of a portrait-shooter, the longer focal length doesn't do that much harm. Oh well....:lol:
Which one would you get, and why?

Thanks for the input!

If your lens lineup in your sig is accurate....60mm Macro.

First it does macro, second it is insanely sharp, third it brings you a FL you have nothing near.

I totally agree. The 60mm is a great lens and will be a great addition to your collection.
