Hello,

I was wandering if I could buy just one macrolens for bugs and flowers. I want to shoot close up dragonflies but I also want to shoot colorfull flowerpictures (flowerstems). Can I buy just one lens? I think that I should go fora long focal length (100, 150 or 180) to not scare the bugs and when I want to shoot flowers I just have to take a step back. But is this right?


In a month I get the canon 70-200 4.0 L (is this good for the bugs??)


thanks Maarten

Yes - if you don't want to get too close
The Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 has a Macro version...

This is from an older non-macro version @ f/2.8:
