    90mm or 105mm gives you more working distance, while 180mm or 200mm is the ultimate for bugs shooter.

    This is good advise ....
    Now I got to really reconsider if I should get the Nikon 60mm or ... ???
    Thanks ....

    Thumbs up Re: Lens for macro photography

    Do consider the Nikkor AF Micro 60mm f/2.8D. For S$600, it's a good lens to begin with. I also own it and have been very pleased wtih its results. See the following photo for example: -
