    Simply put you are going to have to decide: Macro or zoom and how much you want to spend.

    There's not much point in discussing it until you can pin down those two things.

    Then my first suggestion would be the Nikon 105mm AF-S VR Micro or the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di.

    Personally, I'd be very satisfied with either of these.

    I was using the Tamron tonight and it's very good. It's actually my wife's and she has given me the green light to get the Nikon 105 but I'm not sure it's worth it if I can borrow this. Interestingly it doesn't seem to vignette on my D800 either.
    Kind regards

    Doesn't the 70-200MM cost over 2000....The 80-200mm is a cheaper option....Or the 70-200mm F4

    I was thinking about purchasing the 105mm macro Nikkor, but I think I've decided on the 90mm macro Tamron. My friend has the 90mm macro Tamron on a Canon 6D and it is an amazing quality lens. Having used the Nikkor 105mm macro for about a week I've personal decided that I'll save the 400 dollars and get the Tamron. Just my 2 cents.

    I have the Tamron. Hard to go past if your on a budget. Another plus is its actually a very good portrait lens as well.

    I agree. I also personally like it better then all the other third party offerings. The 40mm micro Nikkor is cheap and a great macro lens also, but for insects and stuff it's hard because you have to get real close.

    I'm not sure if this lens is included but I know Tamron has some sells going on with 100 dollar rebate until Sept 31. DigitalRev has the 90mm Tamron for 329.99 Tamron SP AF 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 Lens--DigitalRev
