I am new to this having just received my first slr camera for Christmas. (Nikon D40X with the 18-55 mm lens) Although I was once into photography in a big way, the "Polaroid camera" was hi tech at that time so let's just say I know nothing. I want to photograph insects and my bank balance, both of which are very tiny, and I am wondering what I should be buying as far as lenses go. I have been doing some searching on ebay and other camera shops and I am not sure what the difference between the stackable "magnifying" lenses (1+, 2+, 3+, 4+ & 10+) and the fisheye lenses is. I know the fisheye will distort/round the edges of the images and so I think I should be using the stackable lenses, but they seem rather ... mickey mouse to me. Is there no lens like a zoom lens that will give me an image of a grasshopper that fills the view finder and which I can adjust just like a zoom lens and which will use the auto focus? (An aside here: How do people with glasses manage with the view finder on an SLR? I find it limits my filed of vision when looking through the viewfinder with my glasses on but without them the image is blurry (of course) so I just have to trust that the AF is working right.) Also, I would alike to purchase a zoom lens to photograph wild animals and because my bank balance is so tiny I was looking at the Phoenix lenses for around $300 - $400 for 650mm - 2600mm. I realize the quality cannot be comparable to the maker's lenses but the $5,000 - 10,000 difference in price makes me think it is the only solution if I want to photograph wild animals. Your help and advice is greatly appreciated.
