Hey everyone, I've recently become interested in macro photography, though I still love the nature and street photography I have been enthralled with until now. I bought a Nikon dSLR about a year ago. I have the kit zoom lens that came with it, but it's a bit slow at f3.5 to f5.6. So with the summer under way and a little more time on my hands, I've been browsing for a new lens. I realize that a good lens investment is rather costly. But being a student and having acquired said camera not too long ago, I am restrained to a tight budget. And though I would love to buy both a true 1:1 macro lens and a fast wide angle lens, I just don't have finances for it. So I've taken a look at some of my choices on B&H Photo Video. If anyone could take a look and give me some suggestions, or just general advice about lens choice, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I like portraits as well, hence the Nikon 50mm? Good choice? Help?
