    yea, Im waiting for my new debit card to come. Should be here monday, I think im going to do it, Ive been wanting a dedicated macro lens (instead of my sigma 70-300 "macro"

    trying to frame up a shot at 200-300 mm is way to difficult, and most the time im to lazy for the tripod :)

    Edit: didnt realize that was used, and for a nikon. great deal though

    Saw that after I ordered it, but for that price I couldn't pass it up. Specially if it cost me $150 at the end. :dunno:

    Yeah I saw a Nikon 60mm f/2.8 macro on craigslist for $300 yesterday, I almost grabbed it, but I'd rather have the 28-70 right now. :noes:

    Definitely post pics, my next purchase is likely to be a macro.

    god I love my tamron 90mm.

    Thing is so sharp I have actually had to blur some images in PP.

    It's like shooting with a fucking electron microscope.

    I almost actually sent my 80-200 2.8 into Nikon because I thought the pics were off.

    Turns out I was just comparing em to images from the Tamron. Which isn't fair.

    I really really really want this lens but it would be cutting into the D300 fund.
