Macro Lens - Best recommended for beginners

2 years 9 months ago #653176 by quesadillamas
Hello everyone! I'm new here and first of all, I want to say I'm excited to join this site and get to see all your cool pictures. I have a question and I am hoping some of you could help me out. I'm thinking of getting a macro lens for my Canon Rebel T6. I don't need anything too fancy or anything, just a basic kind since it will be my first macro lens and I'm still trying to experiment with different lenses. Hoping to hear from y'all soon. Thank you!

Go with a 60mm or 100mm, you can likely find decent deal on used for both.

An even cheaper solution could be extension tubes. I
got a set of three I wouldn't do without.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Tamron makes a decent 90mm. Tubes are fun with almost any lens, and more so with a macro.
