    Nikon 200/4, Tamron 180/3.5.

    Almost all modern shorter macro lenses are F2.8

    Tamron 60mm f/2. That's for DX only though.


    Then there is the Nikon 85mm f/3.5 DX...

    the big aperture is so that your viewfinder is nice and bright for fine focusing at macro distances

    I remember now. There is the old Nikon micro-Nikkor AF 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6D ED lens.

    don't want f2.8?

    you can try this one... Nikkor manual focusing macro lenses.

    this is version one,



    this is version two,



    both are much older than you, you can get it rather cheap from ebay.

    hope this help.
