Considering its early days I would be dead chuffed with these results. Looks like you made the right choice and wish you luck with it in the future

Hi lads, ended up buying the tamron 90mm. So far I am very pleased with it and managed to get a few good shots that i feel are worthy on here looking at them on here is not quite the same as full screen, but its good enough

Hi Andy
I am a fan of Tamron lenses which are a tad underrated. My 75-300 half life size is a good one. On the question of who do you buy a macro lens from thatís a difficult one. There are a lot of on-line traders who deal in grey imports and they are usually priced way below the UK price.
There is a risk and I guess it depends if you feel it is one worth taking. Thatís about all I can say about this as I am undecided.
As to choice of macro for me a shortlist would contain a Canon 100mm, (the bog standard one) I would look long and hard at the Tamron, as I fancy in the lower price bracket it is a good one. In the upper price bracket it would be the Canon MP65. My choice of macro is swayed because I own macro lenses so ease of use would be a consideration, my main macro lens is a manual.

Hi guys, I have been doing some more research seeing as you reccomend the tamron.

I found this lens on jessops, which seems to be the standard uk price at £369

But I have also found the same lens from digitalrev (grey import company) which is priced at £220

Without sounding like a doughnut, can you guys help me confirm that this is the same lens as its a heck of a lot cheaper! Also have any of you used this company before, it's got hundreds of good reviews but it's always nice to hear it from someone you know.

Sorry not sure how to do links

Thanks for your help over the last few days btw

Any of you like an incident light meter attachment for your iPhone 4/4S?

Luxi

I ordered one of these, promptly forgot about it and upgraded my phone. It is still in the blister pack.

Incident light readings are very useful as they measure the light falling on your subject, not the reflected light which can sometimes cause errors in exposure. This was going to save a bit of space in my camera bag.

£20 posted.

The Canon 100mm USM is a good choice as is the Tamron. My flickr page is a mixture of flower macro's and insects, mainly taken with vintage lenses details are johnt2012 if you fancy a look.
