    Nikon AF mount. Can I get halfway decent glass and get all three of these for less than 1000?

    what's teh advantage of getting a dedicated macro lense as opposed to buying extensions besides it being auto?

    fisheye gets boring fast

    50mm shuldn't be slower than f/1.8, really f/1.4, even if its a macro.

    the two posted above are great. the 100mm Tokina Macro lens is also good.

    Digital, nikon D70 AF mount. I really don't need a 50mm because of the kit lens, but I'm not sure what my optimal macro focal length is.

    Id like to have a fisheye some day. May get old but I doubt I would use it that often so it would be kinda cool to have around for days when you just want to do something different.

    yeah, you know i find alot of functions with it, esp with nikon capture it can take out the pincushion distortion with that lens. and you know it works for macro's really well too. I just took this for my mom this weekend with it.

    I think this is the coolest picture I've ever taken with it. This was taken on the old Hana Highway in Hawaii

    I think a 10-11mm is more my style.....would a 10mm lense produce the same product with a 1.5/1.6 camera like the 350D?
