Then you will need to figure out for yourself if you need a wider lens or a longer lens. We don't know your preferred shooting style or how you feel limited by your current lens.

if you just want a all rounder lens, can consider tamron 18-270 or 18-200

if you willing to spend more, then consider 10-22 or 16-45 or 17-40 for wide angle,
70-200 for zoom.

I am interested in micro shot. Like taking photo of insect. What kind of lens should I be looking out for. Budget type please. BTW, I am using Nikon D5000 so do I need af-s lens for micro?

Maybe u could try "zoom lens EF 75-300 F/4-5.6 III" with Wide lens converter..which means if u dont want 2 take landscape, u could simply remove the converter frm the front of ur lens and take normal shots and macro..so the converter is attach and detachable..

down to earth solution with no regards on image quality:
tammy 18-270mm + wide angle converter

expensive solution:
get an FF + 16-35mm and a crop body + 24-70mm and another crop body + 70-300mm

the real solution u really want to hear:
unfortunately no manufacturer hve created any 10-500mm lens :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

Wide angle converter is a very bad idea. The image quality degrades a lot when you use such converters and in a worst case scenario, the TS might end up getting cheated and pay $200-$300 for the lousy converter.

I second the tamron 18-270 suggestion.
