I hope someone already compared it and can help me decide.
The 100L is a very good lens, I had it a few years before and it was one of my favorite, because all my other lenses were not very fast at this time, but I had to sell it and I´m not sure if I really need it again.
Now I got the 70-200 IS II and will get the 24-70 II soon, both with 2.8 so fast enough for me on my 5D III.
My question would be if the qualitiy of the pictures with one of the two lenses with Canon extension tubes will be close to the 100L marco lens.
I know I´ll loose infinity focus but with most Macro pictures it´s not shot and go like in a city.
And the second thing I have to decide is what to do about strobes.
I do have the new 600 Speedlight and I´m not yet sure if I can live with it or should get a macro flash.
I would mostly go for flowers and occasionally a insect if I get a good one close enough.
Did someone compare the two Canon macro strobes and maybe another good and not to expensive vendor?
And did someone get a good result with the LED lights ?
I´m not sure about the LED´s, also thinking about getting one for Video, but I´m curios about the Colors.
Thanks a lot to everybody for your help
