    Actually, i'm looking for a good macro lens. Maybe the Canon 100mm? Maybe Kenko tube extensions for my 50mm? Something for my 40D :dunno:

    the Tamron I have is the best bang for your buck EVER! $450 for a badass portrait and macro lens...

    I love it.

    But if you're on super budget, get a 50mm 1.8 and a reverse mount bracket. $150 or so total, but it's manual focus/meter.

    yup, I mailed it in as soon as I got it! So essentially I got the lens for $360!
