    maybe your brand of camera would help a little too as different brands have different range of macro lens..

    Eh...., actually it is better if you post on general or newbie forum than kopitiam.

    Pro Image: He stated it already: "....nikon 55, 60 or the 105mm.....".

    It is depends on your subject. Nikkor 55mm or 60mm micro is to short to take insect, dragonfly or butterfly. 105mm or more is better.

    But, I just buy Nikkor 60mm micro. It is very good lens for me, sharp, light, cheap also. Only $600 (+GST) new one. Only the working distance sometimes make me want to buy longer micro one.

    Regards,
    Arto.

    what's your budget?
    How serious are you in taking macro long term?
    what kind of subjects do you want to shoot?

    in seriousness... i' like to do all kinds of photog. be it macro or portraiture, so far i've enjoyed it tremendously! that's why thought of getting a dedicated lens to do a specific job. as for budget, i know that the 105mm is abt 1 grand + i'll check out CS often and see if there's any good bargain, thanx guys
