    Depend on your budget and type of usage.

    Your can take macro shot with either one of the following.
    Macro lens
    Close-up filter
    extension tube
    reversed lens

    Macro lens = for this lens what is the spec. i need to look for like focal L? f/stop?
    Close-up filter = it is the one look like UV filter only?
    extension tube = i never see it before?
    reversed lens = this one also.

    Macro on its own is quote vague.. What kind in particular? Daily abstracts? Flora? Insects?

    U dun need a L lens, u need one that render 1:1 reproduction ratio, they are normally tele (primes) with fixed aperture.

    For all of ur questions above other than 1.. Google is ur best friend.. use it..

    This is one way to use reverse lens (this is the more extreme way actually):

    Good place to start reading on how to shoot macro. Tons of info in here, including some lens suggestion:
    http://photo.net/learn/macro/

    Also I recommend, apart from lenses:

    - Tripod with ability to do horizontal center column. Something like Manfrotto 190xprob or Gitzo explorer. Some thing that allow you do to this or this

    - This will also come in handy.

    - You will need a flash and a good diffuser that can stretch over the long lenses. Something like one of these.

    BTW I am not a macro shooter. I love nature and insects and all. I just do not like to see them up close.
