Re: cheaper macro lens instead of $1000 Nikon

You don't want to be shining bright lights or flash at a new baby.

I suggest using a close-up lens (Raynox or similar) on a standard lens, as this avoids the big loss of light given by a macro lens or by extension tubes. You also retain auto-focus and stabilisation.

(A macro lens is basically a lens with built-in extension tubes.)
