This is a follow up to my first query about photographing artwork. There was a consensus that I go with a macro lens: Is Canon T2i and kit lens good for shooting (2D) artwork?
I think I'm finally ready to purchase. I found this lens and I wonder if anyone has an opinion on it as a macro lens: Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens
it has excellent reviews and is inexpensive. Or should I just get a standard non-zooming 50mm or 60mm macro lens?
And if you have any other thoughts in reguards to photograhing artwork please let me know.
