Now that you have the 70-180 micro, would you consider using the 200micro or use your 300 f/4? I am curious because I love the flexibility of the zoom micro lens, but I like the reach of the 200 micro or 300 f/4.
Good answer! I keep reconsidering the 200mm micro, but I can't get past the wonderful flexibility of the 70-180. I haven't tried a teleconverter yet on the 70-180, but I have tried a close up filter. :smile:cwilt said:Very nice zinnia captures, Crystall. I agree, the 70-180 does have good contrast and color.
I can't see why I would need the 200. What about using a TC on the 70-180? I think the 300/4, extension tube, and 1.4TC combo worked well for me, but other opinions may say other wise. It doesn't have as much fine detail as the 70-180, but then I am shooting from 3 feet, not 3 inches. :wink:
My simple answer is that I will not be looking for a 200micro. :smile:
