I am using a Nikon D5100 and I am looking for the best macro lens. I have looked at some Nikon lens like AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED, AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G. Still not sure which to buy. I am mostly interested in shooting bugs and flower details.
Can you please guide me:
1. How to choose a macro lens and what all criterion needs to be taken into consideration?
2. Is there a better macro lens than the two I listed above for the Nikon D5100?
Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks for taking time to read this.
