Hey everyone! I just started to get into photography. I have a D5100 Camera with 18-55m and 55-300 lens. I wish to now take pictures of bugs & flowers up close. I can't figure out which lens is best without breaking the bank too much. I see nikon is coming out with their new 40m lens and i was thinking about getting that. Then i'm told that a 105m lens would be best. Big price difference as well.


Thank you!

I decided on 3 lens:
Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP AF/MF
Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor Lens
Tokina 100/2.8 ATX Digital Ready 1:1 AF-D Macro

About $500 in price difference. Is it worth the extra $500?
