    I got my d70 today and i'm a n00b :) I movied over from a coolpix 4300. It took pretty decent macros, what lense do I need for the d70 for good macros?

    for good macros? A set of closeup filters.

    For great macros? A dedicated (this means expensive) macro lens.

    Wow, little late for that man.

    Mine takes b-e-a-utiful macros. What's so bad about the D70? Camera of the year in it's price range if I remember correctly. Anyway. Any of the micro-nikkor macro lenses would be a good start, the price is rediculous IMO though.
