I was just wondering about some advice for buying a macro lens for my Rebel T2i in which I plan on doing a lot of close-up cinematography in an upcoming short film project.
I was interested in buying the Canon 60mm 2.8 Macro
However I really don't want to drop $300 - $400 for a macro lens that I likely will only be using on occasion, additionally, I always try to avoid using modern lenses because I love having oldschool glass thats full manual for doing video.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice on some good (and relatively cheap) macro lenses that more or less compare to the Canon 60mm and of course, are entirely manual (I'm looking for something that falls among Nikon Ai, Sigma, Pentax, Canon FD, Vivitar, etc.)
And if anyone is interested in selling me one, that would be awesome as well!
