Getting into macro

Recommended Posts

I have a few questions here so didn't know which forum to put it under. I am looking to get into macro. Specifically I am looking right now because of a trip to South America and want to capture insects, butterflies, architectural details, food, etc. So a little of everything close up. I have no experience with macro and I'm trying to decide what to get. Being that it is for travel size and weight are important but I want something that will take quality images and allow me to capture what I want. I imagine working distance is important with insect so the 60mm macro may be out because of that and also it isn't 1:1. I don't think I want to spend the money on the 80mm. I would like to keep it under $700 but that is not a firm number if I have enough justification. I have been looking into the fuji 60mm, a rokinon 100mm MF lens, and I also have a canon camera so I have considered the canon 100mm and a sigma 105mm. All have different trade offs from price to size to AF. I am also trying to decide if I should spend a little less on the lens so I can get an inexpensive ring light.
