i just got a canon t3i for christmas and the stock lens is obviously not the greatest. i'd like the macro pics of my tanks to be much nicer. so the question comes: What macro lenses do you use? i'd rather rely some on peoples first hand experiences rather that blowing a ton of money and not having something i'm happy with.
also, who uses a remote shutter control? which ones? there are a ton of super cheap ones out there but i'm a bit skeptical of them.
