Nikon 40mm micro alternative
Sep 26, 2012

Well I had a little incident with my Nikon 40mm f2.8 micro. It went flying out of my hand and landed on a ceramic tile floor. Needless to say it did not come out of it unscathed. The aperture blades are shattered. I really do like this lens as a general walkabout lens, but find I haven't used the macro capability much. So I'm looking at a replacement lens and just curious if anyone has any recomendation on another lens in that range. As said macro not so important, so I'm not set on that same lens. I shoot with a D90 and thinking a 40-50mm range, and want at least an f2.8. Also a quality zoom is an option, although I dont want to get ridiculously expensive.

Thanks all.
