The Sigma 105mm Macro is also a cracking lens and gives great results.
Do you think I'm made of money, Oldboy? I'm really stretching my budget if I go for the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, so that might have to wait for the time being. What I'm trying to weigh up is whether I'll need a longer telephoto lens than the 270mm the Tamron will give me and if not should I get the Macro lens for doing portraits and macro work.
Chris, I do cover a wide spectrum of photography work, as for my hobby I do landscapes predominantly, the occasional family party and a bit of macro work on the flowers and bugs in the garden. For work, I photograph the kitchens that both I and my fellow designers do once they've been fitted and I photograph items of furniture for our company's website and some adverts.
I'm going to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Arches Parkland, Zion Canyon, Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell next year on a photography holiday, so I just want to make sure I've got all the right kit for that.
