Looking for recommendation...Macro lens
on Apr 30, 2018 at 12:54:19 pm

I have a Canon Mark D lll - I am exploring with Macro photography. I been using the kit lens 24 - 105. Not really doing what I would like. To avoid a mistake [which I just did, ordered a macro 60 mm EF-S, I did not pay attention to the S, which is crop sensor only and was just told won't fit my camera]. When it arrives, I will return it.
I would be interested in recommendation....a macro that is good enough to see the eye of a fly if that is possible. Best Sz

I use the Canon 50mm Macro. You can get extension tubes. Canon also makes a 100mm Macro.

Thank you for responding. I will look into the 50 mm Macro...

If you have time to give impute on these lens [I can buy new] These were second hand and seem might fit the bill maybe [all manual, I am familiar with from the old days of college]

I came across a Zeiss 50 mm f/2.0 Canon EF
35 mm film/full frame
max/reproduction ratio 1:2
there is no auto focus, maybe not so important for Macro?

Canon Normal 50 mm f/3.5 FD Macro Manual Focus Lens with 1:1 Tube.

Zeiss 50 mm f/2.0 Makro-Planer ZE Macro Lens for Canon EF Mount SLR

They are all good lenses. If you can bring your camera and test them before you buy, that's what I'd so.
