Hi, well, being a year since I started with photography and have to say I've learned a lot, and most of it thanks to this site. Started with nikon but it failed and finished with the store giving me a canon instead (odd but true) and at the moment get a 50 1.4 and a 18-125 for all around photography, both sigma and have to say very good indeed.
Since I don't get a chance to shoot outside that much (really dangerous to go out with a camera over here) I decided to focus more on my portraits indoors and since a while back I been wanting macro in products, or maybe some staged scenes with still life, water tanks, toys, etc., so my question is this, i'm close to have enough for a true macro lens, I'm going with sigma again, but I don't know which focal lenght should be better for me, there is a 70 2.8 macro and a 105 2.8 macro both at similar price point, so my real problem is which one to choose, is the 70 going to be to little for what I want or is the 105 going to be too much, also lets take into account I'm using aps-c sensor so it's 70*1.6 or 105*1.6 (using canon).
The other is go for a set of extension tubes (which I can get right away) and get more juice out of my 18-125 and go for other accesories that may be useful for my indoor shooting.
Oh boy, there are so many choices, but it is really good to have this place to find good pointers and recommendations.
Just for the record, the kind of set up scenery with toys I would like to accomplish are like these ones:http://fstoppers.com/proof-that-great-photography-has-little-to-do-with-your-wallet
