Close Up Lens

Alas, I was going to get myself the 100mm lens, but the tax man cometh. Does anyone have a suggestion for a reasonably priced macro lens substitute for my trusty K20D?

I am still going to acquire the 100mm lens, but will have to wait a month or two.

And see the Raynox Club thread if you doubt the performance you can get for $40. And in a package the not much bigger than a double-stuff Orea cookie, at that.

Cate, if you're going to get a macro lens anyway, I'd just wait until you get the funds for it. Unless you need macro capability now, or macro lens prices are beyond your budget, I suggest looking at the DFA 100 macro, whether WR version or not (depending on your needs). Other cheaper choices include the Tamron 90 f/2.8 macro and Sigma 70 f/2.8 macro. These are all autofocus. If you want to save more money you can get manual focus macro lenses, but these will be harder to find.

All the best for that.
