    Hi all,
    Just like to know which lens do you use most for fish photography? Do you take small fishes or larger ones as well (e.g. discus, anglefishes, luohan).

    Most of the time, I would prefer to use the 90/100/105 mm focal length for any macro lens. I also find the 180 mm macro lenses useful sometimes for smaller fishes.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Luenny,
    My Fuji S6500fd has a fixed len, so no choices of lens to change.
    But I use close-up filter to help taking close-up of my fish.

    For large fishes, a kit lens or any normal zoom lens will do the job as well.

    Working distance wise, if below 2ft and need to shooting adult discus a 60mm macro is very useful.
