    I am looking for a macro lens that will work on my Nikon D3200.

    I'll be using this to photograph wristwatches and similar objects, so I have some flexibility over whether the lens is autofocus or not.


    Price and currency: Depends on lens, condition, etc

    If you look on talkphotography.co.uk there is a 60mm for sale at a very good price.

    We have, at the moment, 3 macro lenses that we use with my wife and would like to sell one of the two:

    £400 Nikon 105mm VR Micro, great condition except some light marks on the hood
    £400 Sigma 180mm EX DG HSM, great condition

    If you do not mind about auto focus we also have a mint 60mm AF-D
    Extremely sharp lens and probably your best bet for watch macro photography.
    Can let than one go for £190. It is mint and boxed.

    All collected from Warwick or Oxford or plus postage at cost

    Sorry - 105mm is outside my budget :-( so please feel free to deal with xiaomei.

    Still evaluating my (cheaper!) options ...

    My apologies. I fear that I started this search with unrealistic expectations of what was available in the way of macro lenses and at what price points.

    I will archive this listing and go away and do a lot more research into what will best meet my needs and my budget.

    Thank you to those who replied.
