    Hi; I'm a guy in his upper 70's who can't make up his mind between the
    following lenses:
    Canon-EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
    Tamron-SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro
    The reviews have been excellent for each one. Probably the answer is choose
    either one.
    I've got to decide soon. Thank you for any feedback.
    I'm posting this on all the other digital newsgroups.

    Internal focusing would do it for me.

    To help get a feel for what the Tamron will do, here's a gallery of images
    of 1/18th scale cars shot with that lens and a 20D:
