    I wanted to do some macro but I did't have the cash for a decent macro lens.
    I grabbed a reverse macro ring for $5 from ebay the other day and decided to use it with my D60 and Nikkor 35mm f1.8 AF-S DX.
    I was very happy with the result, for a fraction of the cost I got great macro.

    Just search for "reverse macro ring" on ebay.
    You screw it on the front of your lens and it makes it so you can attach your lens backwards onto the camera, hence giving it macro capabilities.

    Thanks and :lol:
