    Macro lens

    Well lets face it I am not liking the pictures I am getting from my tank and no little of photography equipment. Love my camera, cannon eos rebel xsi. Looking for a lens for this this camera that will allow me to get the close up pictures that I so desire. Anyone have any suggestions of a good macro lens they are using. I realize these are really expensive and will be an investment in a few months from now, just want some input of someone that uses them currently.

    Thanks
    Bobby

    It's the most expensive glass I have. When my husband got it for me 3 years ago (before he got laid off) it was $950. I was flabbergasted when I opened it! If I had been buying it myself I would have bought something cheaper but it is really nice.
