    Could a generous soul give me an idea of the type of macro lens I could buy (my first lens ever) for my Nikon D50 and ballpark ideas on pricing?

    For under 200$ should I go for a used lens?

    Thanks!! :heart:

    Yeah! I was thinking in CAN$...
    Would you recommend I go for a used lens for that price range?

    Thanks!

    Check out a Nikkor 28-105 AF with Nikon closeup attachment also. The results are quite good and on a D50 it makes an awesome lightweight combo anyway.
