wait to you compare its images to the 70-200's, ummm, lets say you will be surprised at 90mm which is the better optical imager:)

I love my T90....

The Tammy 90 is an amazing glass. It is a real value priced gem. Tack sharp and creamy bokeh because the way its aperture is made. You will be very pleased. Here are some examples.

Creamy Bokeh:

I'm looking at a Nikon Normal Macro 55mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor AIS Manual Focus Lens used. It's just under $200. I'd like a macro lens, just not sure if this is what I want. I want to be able to do those gorgeous flower shots and maybe insects (not sure on that one). My friend and I are going to be getting a booth at some of our holiday fairs, so I have to start taking more of the kind of photographs that make people go "OOooooo" and buy them :)

Thanks!
