Doing macro photography outdoors “in the wild” often means that you
can’t get too close to your subject and lighting can’t be easily controlled.
That’s when you need a telephoto macro lens like the SAL100M28. Greater
working distance means you can capture tight macro shots of small-scale
wildlife without scaring it away, and you’re not so close that you need
special lighting to illuminate your subject. Of course the SAL100M28 is a first
class telephoto lens for normal shooting too, and can be a good choice for
portraits or other subjects that require a bit more reach than a normal lens.
