I have always wanted to own a macro lens for an occasional close up shot of a flower or a bug perhaps. Instead of parting myself with big bucks, I recently acquired a macro lens adapter from Nikon which I used to fix a prime 50 mm 1.8D Nikkor lens to my D7000.
The shots speak for themselves. The rose is a “button rose” meaning it is one of those really small roses. You would not believe that looking at this picture.
