If you're considering the 2.5 then you're in the 50/1.4 neighborhood $$$ wise and that would be better I think...unless you get lucky and find the macro for a reaaaallly good price...I got a real dealon one at a pawn shop...it's sharpeven wide open...still, if you're getting $$$ for your work, thenyou and they deserve the 1.4.
