Hi folks

I have a canon EOS 70D and I would love a good Macro lens I don’t mind if it is a Canon lens or a Sigma lens as long as the results are good

As usual there is one thing that I have to take into consideration the Budget

I only have a budget of about £200-£300 to spend :oops:

I don’t mind buying from Flea Bay if the seller has Very good Feedback and they are in the UK

Can I get a good lens for my budget ?

What would you recommend?

Thanks Lee

This one seems to be comparable (Photo plus mag) to the canon L in most respects with the exception of it not being weather sealed.

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro OS HSM

It's currently £380 on WEX and Amazon so slightly above budget but might be worth saving for as it gives image stabilisation and works on full frame cameras too
