Re: Budget macro recommendation

Get a used AI-S Micro Nikkor 55/2.8 and (if you want 1:1 magnification) a PK-13 extension tube. You should be able to get both with your budget. Super sharp lens, small, light, but built like they used to: it will last a lifetime, and it's useful also as a landscape or portrait lens.
