comment Lens for shooting paintings with Canon 550d
Thanks for the answer Sergiu. Fortunately at this stage most of the work is greyscale charcoal drawings and etchings so I don't have to worry too much about colour (although this will change in future).

@Nick Miners Great, thanks for clarifying that. At 105mm, how far back would I need to be to photograph at 3m artwork? Also, what are the characteristics of a Macro lens such as the one you recommend?

Thanks for the recommendation. Considering this is an APS-C sensor (I think), does your suggestion of greater than 80mm need to be translated to greater than 50mm?
