    Question Macro Lens

    I'm wanting to buy a macro lens for my Nikon D70, I've been looking at the Sigma 105mm macro lens (as I think this is the best one for a Nikon D70) but the cheapest I can find it for is 399, does anyone know where I can get it cheaper or is this the lowest price im going to find?

    Thanks!

    Hi Charotte. I have the Sigma 70mm f2.8 Macro which I use on my D300 and it's a cracker. The benefit of the 105mm will allow you to be further away from subject, thus not scaring it off it's an insect. Park Cameras sell the 105 Sigma for 389.99. Mifsuds.com have a 105mm f2.8 for 249 in their used section so it may be worth checking out. It seems most major retailers charge roughly the same for many lenses. I often look at the websites of these retailers for a peek at their used section, it can pay off. All the best.

    oh thank you, 249 does seem better, a bit more in my price range anyway . I did look at the Sigma 70mm but I thought it may be better to get the 105mm incase of scaring an insect or whatever, as you said! but thanks for the advice will definitely have a look at those websites!

    Cheers!

    Hello,
    Without spending too much
    canon 100mm f/2.8 macro
    it also works as a short tele lens too. The 100mm gives you confortable working distance. The f/2.8 will let you play with the depth of field. Although i do suggest f8-11 for most situtations.

    Thanks
