    So to bring this back up to the top he's asking about a Macro lens as the lens he has isn't great for close shots apparently. He's using the camera weekly which is great though! What about this one? Again I don't want to spend a fortune!

    Should be just fine. For better resale a Nikon lens would be better but probably a shit load more money.

    This should be great for starters. Maybe try to find a longer macro lens for more zoom but I really don’t know exactly what he’s trying to get good pics of. Some insects might get spooked if you get too close. A 50mm macro will require you to get a few inches from the subject whereas with a 100mm macro you could be a little further away. Just depends on what he’s trying to get a good shot of
