Re: Good first Macro lens for D40?

I have the Sigma 105 DG Macro, it is a very sharp lens.

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!
