Thanks to Raghu (whom I pester a lot with myriad of photography question), I held off buying Canon 50mm F/1.8 almost on the spur of the moment. He insisted I wait and go for a Canon 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens (because he read between the lines and figured that macro photography is what I wanted to experiment with at some point in future).
Since Canon 60mm macro was much more expensive than the 50mm prime, he said the wait-time for accumulating enough budget is worth all the efforts. A colleague of mine (Bryan), during general chit-chat, then convinced me that it is much-much more fun to shoot macro with 100mm than 60mm. Long story short, after saving enough, and jumping sooner than I expected, stretching my budget a little higher, one fine day I dived into Canon 100mm F/2.8 USM Macro. And I'm in love with the results it produces.
This is the first time I'm trying true macro photography, and see the results it produced.
