Whenever someone asks for a good but affordable macro lens, people would always confidently point you to any version of Nikon's macro lenses -- they are all good and there's no point in pixel peeping to 1000% zoom and bitching about what's not there.

Grab one if you see one because they're real cheap and will instantly open up a new world to you. If you might be wondering how one version might differ from the others, then let me point them out for you here.
