MACRO LENS for a D5000

13 Nov 2012 12:41AM   Views : 514 Unique : 417

Hello everyone,

I Read a number of reviews on the Nikon 40mm Micro lens - reviews have been good. The lens is $100 cheaper to buy on line but I'm worried about buying on line.

For those of you with Tamron lenses - what would you recommend at the same price as the Nikon 40mm Micro?

I honestly have not seen any images taken with the Nikon 40mm Micro that is any better than using my reverse ring - would love to see some good quality, sharp images taken with the Nikon 40mm Micro or Tamron Micro at same price or any other lens at the same price.

I am also thinking of purchasing a set of extension tubes and actually wondering if I should just go with that and not worry about the Micro lens - all thoughts are welcome

Hope everyone has a wonderful day

You really need to ask your question in the forums, this is a blog (diary) area and probably wont get you the answers you need.

Thank you for advice - I knew I was doing the wrong thing but as usual I never listen to myself - I'm worse than my kids
