Good first Macro lens for D40?
Jul 26, 2007

Hi all,

Long time reader first time poster. Searched the forums but couldn't find any posts about this so here goes.

I recently bought a D40. Having a great time learning with it, but i really enjoy macro photography so I was hoping for some advice on a decent macro lens.

I know most of them won't auto focus on the D40, but if it's cheap i don't mind. Probably better to spend a lot less and get a manual focus macro lens rather than blow $750 on the AF-S Nikkor 105mm VR macro lens (which i hope to get one day).

Thanks in advance for any macro lens suggestions!
