Macro Lens for Nikon D70


Hello everyone,
I just purchased a Nikon D70, and it came with the 18-70 lens. Is this lens good for macro shots? I am looking to photograph insects, flowers, etc. I am very new at using a digital SLR, so I could use some help with what other macro lens to buy. Thanks very much for any help.

  I have the 60mm Micro Nikkor. It's awesome. Goes up to F36!! Sharp as a tack ... great depth of field control whether you want everything in focus or just want selective focus! Not all that expensive either!!

Michael Cocita   Cool, thanks, I did see that one, I think that will be my choice. Have you submitted any pics using that lens? Thanks for your help.

  Yes ... there are bunches of them in my gallery. Fading, The Pollinator, Thirsty little bugger ... and many more. Just click on any image that looks like it might be a macro shot. I always list the lens used in the descriptions!!
