    I have a D90 and am looking for a macro for bugs, flowers, portraits.
    Which do you recommend?
    I have read lots of reviews and can't figure which of the Nikon 60mm/2.8 would be better for me. Or if there is another brand that you all prefer.
    Any opinions?
    Thanks so much :)

    I have an older Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro and I love it. By far my favorite lens in my bag.

    You might want longer focal lengths (longer working distance) with bugs... many/most are a bit too skittish.

    You can't go wrong with the Nikon 105mm micro but the Sigma 180mm also has good reviews. Depends on your $$$.
