hi there.


anybody can help me to choose lens for macro photography?

i am newbie in photography, i have d90 18-105 kit lens.


thanks in advance..


waiting for reply..
 
is tamron 90mm macro is good to replace for 105 nikkor macro?


105 is too expensive...
 
What are you planning to shoot? Insects? Flowers? Stationary objects such as coins, rings ....etc?
 
Nikon
60mm F/2.8 - More than one version of this one..as with most of these lenses
85mm F/3.5
105mm F/2.8
200mm F/4

Sigma
50mm F/2.8
70mm F/2.8
105mm F/2.8
150mm F/2.8
180mm F/3.5

Tamron
60mm F/2
90mm F/2.8
180mm F/3.5

Tokina
35mm F/2.8
100mm F/2.8

That being said, I wouldnt reccommend anything less than 90mm. Anything less than that will give you not much working distance at all for critters. I own the Sigma 105mm. I wish I had the 150mm. All of these lenses will do you well, especially the Sigma 150, Tamron 90, Tokina 100, and Nikon 105.

Sigma 70mm and 50mm are missing from your list and the sigma 180mm is discontinued now. Its not that old nor a poor option, but its no longer in production so stocks are tight.
 
Fixed. Sorry about that. The 180 Sigma is discontinued, but amazon regularly has them in stock.

instead of just going fo a macro i would try reversing some old primes first. it gives more mag, and it is way cheaper
