As said, all macro lenses from key manufacturers are of high quality. One key factor in deciding which one to get is what you plan to use it on. As macro lenses increase in focal length, the working distance increases as well. A 50-60mm macro lens will put your about just a few inches away from your subject of interest, which is fine if your object is not alive or can bite. If you want to photograph live bugs, snake, etc, a lens with longer fl is needed for the obvious reason.

Thanks to all who took the time to write, I am going to look for a 55MM Nikkor Macro or if Ia bargain an 60mm Nikkor Macro as first pics, and then fall back to a 28mm 2.8 Kalimar.
