I’m a huge fan of extreme close up photography and i always wanted to get a Macro lens, but i could not decide which lens to go for, the price of these lens’s didn’t help either as they can be quite expensive, a decent lens can start at around £150, a really good lens is around £700, this is something i wanted but couldn’t really afford.
