I have been thinking about a macro lens.

Ever since I decided my extension tubes don't really cut it for macro work.

But 1) there are a few to chose from and 2) I am feeling stingy, they seem quite a reasonable price even used!

What is your system?

Nikon F mount - FF

If Tamron made the great old school 90mm f/2.8 macro ( not the new revision) for your mount, you should be able to find one at a moderate price on the used market. I almost bought one for my Pentax system, and while I decided against it, my choice did not have anything to do with image quality. (The new lens looks good too, but won't be a bargain option.)

It is more focal lengths for macro which I can't get my head around. I don't want to have to go right up to a subject to get an image, but I don't know which FL I should be looking at?
