Well, its a really hard decision. The 100mmL im very interested in too and it would be the perfect starting lense with a new FF body. But its like double the price than the non-L. And im still not really sure if the cash is worth the L features since IS on a macro lense is not too useful imho since i like to go as close as i can. And i dont use macro lenses for anything else than macro shots. Snapshots okay sometimes but nothing that matters.
I think ill probably go for the 60mm and work the hell out of it and if i go FF ill buy the 100L. Still...there arent many other cases where lenses are this equal haha.

p.s.

i mostly go for spiders. theyre quite small so magnification is important. more than for like...frogs or such

the picture is about the closes i can go with my old 35mm 2.8 m42 lens. its not even called a macro lens i think.
important for me that i can go closer than this! cropping is not so nice on my 1100D...

well from my experience tripods are really huge and not so comfortable for me since i like to stroll around a lot and not only take macros of insects but also other interesting stuff i find on the way. and sometimes a tripod just gets in my way. so i think a monopod should be a better option and also im gonna use a flash for quick shutter speeds.

so should i go for the NON L 100 or 60mm ? im not changing to FF soon. i just feel its a bit silly if i have to throw away some lenses if i go to FF some day.

would something like this be possible with the 60 aps-c or 100mm FF ? maybe even a tad closer ? can somebody try it out with their lense for me? it should be not too hard with connecting it to the pc nadusing live preview.

Lenses / APS-C 60mm or 100mm macro lens?
« on: February 21, 2015, 08:52:46 AM »
Hi,

im not sure if to buy the ef-s 60mm for my APS-C or the EF 100mm.

pro thing would be that i could use the 100mm on a FF camera too. contra perhaps that 100mm on APS-C is really shaky. but i wanna use a monopod anyway.
price wise they are not so much different. so which one should i go for? thought im gonna go with the YN 14 EX flash. original canon flashes are like extremly expensive for macro shooting...

Amazing shots :) Are these done with just the lens itself without macro rings or whatever? Cuz im thinking about buying it and wanna take a macro shot of my own eyes so i can see all the texture n stuff :P but not sure if it can go close enough. but if ur photos were taken with the lens only then it should work i guess?!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: How to differentiate crop vs. FF
« on: October 16, 2014, 07:32:02 AM »
Well i love wide angle so APS-C is really not my kind. Wide Aperture + wide lense doesnt match a small sensor :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: So what makes a camera a "pro" camera?

The pro camera is the one that imposes the least technical limits on your photography adventure. And just simply said the latest technology available at the moment.

Get off your high horse and read what I actually wrote. And, I don't live on a plant [sic].

I cast no judgement and expressed no opinion of the images other than to point out that with that much post processing any lens characteristics are heavily masked. That is not a contentious comment, it is a factual statement.

Post processing or not i think u can always see the character of a lens still. PP makes the shot better but not the feel. Something like that. Personally i think the more crappy a lens the more easy it is to notice the PP.

Lenses / Re: 100mm L not for portraits?
« on: January 29, 2014, 08:51:33 AM »
you cant have super awesome blurry bokeh and still have a huge area of sharpness in a photo. the only way to achieve this is by dof stacking which is tbh useless for people photography. you "could" get a big blurry background and have the kids in focus (both) if u took e.g. 300mm lens, but that also means u have to move back waaaaay more which is probably not possible indoors.
or, focus one girl first, snap + focus 2nd girl, snap + put the photo of girl 1 and girl 2 in one photo with photoshop or equal.
