Alright, I need to stay in good terms with the CFO so I better go easy on my "investments" for a while. I've got nice glass in my bag but still no way to take macro shots. I should probably say close-ups as I don't intend to do 1:1 shots but rather close-ups of flowers and stuff I might want to sell on eBay. I have been thinking of getting a 77mm 500D close-up lens in order to add this possibility in my bag of tricks. As I said, I don't want to go into the 1:1 territory but I have very nice but small flowers - like an inch wide - that I'd like to photograph and I was wondering if it will permit it. I will use the 500D with my new 70-200 VR and I might add a 1.4 Kenko TC if need be. If someone has examples to show me and other Cafe members, go ahead, it will make my life easier we decision time comes.
