I already have a 105mm Tamron Macro which I love (even though the A/F needed fixing after only using it 3 times). I'm now after a 50mm/60mm Macro as I sometimes find I can't get the whole picture in the frame with my 105mm. I should explain that the main reason I need it is to photograph artworks/fine art prints/framing etc. The fact that I could also actually do full-on Macro work and/or portraiture with it is secondary (but will still be taken into account).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to which lens would be best for my purpose? The main thing is a very flat field of view/perspective (straight lines without distortion and minimal pincushioning, barrel distortion etc).

I'm open to any brand and new or second hand is fine.

Thanks
