    That's already considered cheap. You picked a very expensive hobby.

    Tip: check in the Macro section of ClubSnap for the sticky notes and FAQ. There are cheaper alternatives. READ.

    Your manual has a list of compatible lenses. Read. But you might also want to read up about the macro capabilities of this kit lens.

    You would need to try and sell it. Very few shops will accept it as a trade-in, and if they do, you'll get a bad price.

    If you consider a Tamron 90mm macro expensive, then you will have to consider the cheap setups :

    1. Raynox macro converter (~$120)
    2. Extension tube (~$20)
    3. Reversed lens ring (~$15) and a cheap 50mm prime lens that can maatch to your lens filter size.

    All these can produce very good o/p and many can be more than 1:1, but they have their drawbacks in ease of use and lack of versatility.

    Frankly, the Tamron is already very cheap compared to other lenses of its type.

    Can get it at any camera shop, check for the reputable ones and the price at the price guide section. Of course can use, just get the Nikon mount version.
