I am about to purchase a macro lens for my Nikkon System.
Sine now I was using bellows and my normal 50 mm lens , reversed or not , and occationally a closeup filter on my 75-150 3.5 E.
The results are not spectacular and I am looking for a macro lens. I am considering used or new.
I am not sure about the focal length either.

I know that the longer thet better up to a limit , but the price follows the FL closely

Has any Nikonian used , or uses a manual or AF macro that considers a good buy ?

I hear that the 55 micro nikkor (a certain version) has problems with the diaphragm blades is that true ?.

Also can you recomend a good macro lens considering that price should be within reach of an amateur photographer , from the old or new micro Nikkors , Nikkon has to offer ?

I hope everyone is in good health !
