In most cases, you don't need a macro lens or any additional lens. For smaller parts, such as rings or small studs, a macro lens will provide you with a better quality image in a larger size. However, the images used on the web don't have to be too big, so the 18-55 is also good enough for small objects. They are suitable for use with a wide selection of lenses.
The macro lens, which has a shorter focal length, is ideal for photographing jewelry due to its proximity to the subject. It allows you to create stunning close-ups of life-size gemstones. It allows you to dive deeper into the topics and discover additional details. With macro lenses, you might get the best photos in jewelry photography, but you don't always need them.
Macro lenses help you get more details in images, but other common lenses, such as 18-55 mm lenses, can get clean and accurate photos. You'll get consistent image quality and some useful features for taking close-ups of jewelry and products or other macro photos, such as flowers. The RF 85mm Macro is an ideal lens for those who are new to jewelry photography due to its ease of use and its functions such as the control ring and image stabilization.
