Needing some advice re purchase of macro lens

RE: Needing some advice re purchase of macro lens
With regard to the kind of subjects I'll be shooting, here is a link to my macro album on Flickr (all pics taken with my compact camera)

To sum up, I enjoy photographying nature. Photographing insects is very addictive, but I also enjoy photographing flowers and plants and other small things.

Being new to DSLR, I have not used a macro lens before and therefore don't know about the other uses of these type of lens - eg. portrait or landscape.

I talked to my uncle last night, he has used lots of different cameras and lenses and he highly recommends the Tamron 90mm so it's nice that I'm getting pointed in the same direction by a number of people! Good to hear all the different suggestions though; I appreciate everyone's comments.

Yes, Angela, you should definitely get out and use your lens more! Smile
