MF macro

I'm pretty open to suggestions on this. Preferably any prime between 50 to 100mm (leaning toward the longer end, coz I already have quite a few normal 50s). Don't intend this to be just a macro lens, as I would like to use it a lot for portraits and close/r focus as well. I have settled on manual focus though, since the AF ones are just too expensive for my budget (I had a chance to get a DFA 100 2.8 macro non-WR, and $300-400+ was still too much for me ). I was hoping for something around the $100 -/+ range (though my guess is it will probably be more). I hear good things about the Vivitar 55 2.8 macro. I'd even be open to a good "macro" zoom like a Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 (the ones that do 1:2?).

MF Macro

Hi, I have a Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 TeleMacro lens listed on the marketplace. It's an Adaptall 2 lens and I can sell it with or without the Pentax PK adapter. The macro shots are really nice and the 90mm is quite versatile for portrait and short telephoto shots. Thanks.
