    There is the old Nikon micro-Nikkor AF 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6D ED lens. That's a zoom.

    Most macro lenses are primes. Good luck locating a zoom macro. Wish you all the best.

    there are zoom lenses that have a macro function
    but the magnification ratio is not as great as prime macro lenses

    why do you need zoom?
    you need higher magnification just go closer, don't be shy
    just select the angle of view that you like to get the focal length that is best for you.

    the longer the focal length the lesser the DOF
    the lesser the focal length the greater the DOF

    the focal length also determines the angle of view, which in turns affect how much background you have in your composition.

    tamron 90mm/f2.8 lor. cheap, good and can double up as a portrait lens.

    i still remember a couple of years ago, someone in CS sold the 70-180mm lens for SGD600-ish... dunno if he/she realise the same lens is going for USD600-ish (that time, USD is about 1 to SGD1.7).... the fella who bought that lens should be laughing all the way to the bank.

    You can try Raynox 250, or close up diopters. Raynox is still the better one among the front attachment type of convertors.

    Yes the tamron 90 2.8 is s good one. AF is a bit sluggish but once locked on it delivers superb results. Value for money.

    There's s VC version coming up soon. I bet it will be a killer lens.

    I use a 60mm AF-S over the 105 mm. I like it.
