Re: Best low light/macro/sharp prime combo lens for D90?

Hi Peter,

I would certainly recommend the 50mm f/1.8 lens. The biggest problem you'll probably find with this lens is that the 75mm equivalent focal length is just too long for many subjects. However, there is no better value for money in lenses available period. The lens has simple construction, is small and lightweight, and seemingly indestructible.

If you are only interested in taking close up photography of relatively large subjects (ie. flowers, not bugs), then also purchase a set of extension tubes (preferably those which will allow you to retain autofocus.

Hope this helps,
