Hello.

I'm currently shopping for a macro lens for my dRebel and cannot decide between these 3:

Canon 100/2.8 EF USM

Tamron SP AF90MM F/2.8 Di Macro

Sigma Macro 105mm F2.8 EX DG


All of them seem to be pretty good lenses and are priced similar (while Sigma being the cheapest one and Canon the most expensive). So which one is better? Does anybody has experience testing all of them?

Thanks for any info.

BTW the new EX DG is a revised Sigma, so you are not going to find much data on it... The key here ls "All of them seem to be pretty good lenses" because they are, there's no such thing as a bad macro lens

Thanks for the input NHL. So I guess the only deciding factor here should be the price... And Sigma wins here again.

Thanks for the link. Nice images, very sharp. With a price of $100 less than Canon and Tamron this seems to be a smart buy.
