    I second this. Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro is cheap and good. You can get a used copy for about $450-500.

    Welcome to CS
    you can try looking in the B&S section for a used macro lens with the budget that you have. If not the other alternative is get the Ranox DCR250 close up filter. You still can use your existing lens as long as the filter thread is not larger than 67mm. You can get it here
    Take the shot!

    i second to this, as a close up filter or lens cannot beat a macro lens. Why waste the money to buy a close up filter or lens when you can get a Marco lens, save up more money don't be harsh when buying things, as you may buy something which you don't need.
