Can anyone give me some pointers on a good macro lens for Canon. I would consider either Sigma, Canon or Tamron. I would like something that I could walk around with and take some close-up snaps. I do not necessarily wish to put together a complex set-up and stand everytime I want to take some macro shots. Any help please?
You have to do 2 things...
1) Tell us what camera you are using and what type of subjects you want to take close-up pictures of.
2) Describe the circumstances that preclude you from wanting to use a tripod.
Maybe then we can help.
