I am new to SLRs, recently got a D5000 with the 28-55 lens and 55-200 lens.
I have some interest in macro photography and saw a very inexp3nsive SIGMA 28mm f2.8 macro lens.
I realize it is not a true macro lens, since it does not have 1:1 magnificaiton. And it does not have autofocus motor. Soo...
1. Will it even work on a D5000,that is, can I manaully focus, or is that horrible.
2. Will it have better macro than the 28- 55 lens. I compared this 28-55mm lens to my point and shoot, close but not quite as good as the Canon SD 1000 for small flowers. I may of course learn more about the Nikon.
3. Seems that lots of folks end up using a prime lens most of the time - I have read various posts to this effect. Thus, can I use the Sigma for many other shots?
sorry if quesitons make little sense, very new to all this, thanks much.
