To round out my lens collection (I currently have the 35 and 80), I would like to be able to both get some reach as well as shoot "macro". I primarily do landscapes, no studio work and no portrait/street work with the Alpa
So I just wanted to ask which lens others might choose between the S. APO Digitar 5.6/150mm N sb and the S. APO Digitar 5.6/180mm T sb. I will be buying a couple of extensions to use whichever I get for the "macro" work.
I'd love to hear reasoning from both a subjective approach as well as an objective approach (e.g., sharper, better MTF, etc.). From my own research and understanding, both lenses are good performers at f8 - f 16, which is where I primarily shoot (f11.3 being the sweet spot). I lean a bit toward the 180 as I'll get more reach, but I'm not opposed to cropping the 150 images.
Thanks for any and all input,
