Camera bodies are like cell phones...new ones just keep coming with "features"...it's the glass that stands the test of time. Get a decent body (usually tons used for sale on CL or FB). Invest in your glass...those can be used accross many bodies for whatever brand you choose. Also, for macro shots, you can use extension tubes with your glass to change/modify your minimum focus distance...those can be used accross all your focal lengths and are usually pretty cheap. For example, if you invested in lets say...a decent 70-200...you can get a set of extension tubes for less than $150...usually 12mm/20mm/36mm sets...and you can stack them as well for a max of 68mm. The best part of extension tubes is you get the benefits of a reduced minimum focus distance (can focus closer like macro) and you still keep the full/max/capabilites of the lense/sensor.Can someone recommend a camera for those of who have a real budget?
I mean, a $500 lense? really? And that is supposed to sensible for the everyday reefer?
There has to be a way to get nice pictures and in macro without spending a ton of money.
I don't care what people think of me for not spending a months pay on a body and lense. I just want a decent, better than my G6 Motorola quality photo.
So without buying up a bunch of prime macro lenses with fixed focal lengths...just get extension tubes and use whatever lenses you want... #allthepixels #pixelpeepers #shootraw
Here is a great write-up about extension tubes w/examples from Poseidon
