    Hello,

    I just got this camera recently and since I'm enjoying weekends again, however one thing that struck me in particular is how much I enjoy taking macro photos.

    My camera shipped with stock lens on 18-55mm. However, given the situation I would like to explore my possibilities of purchasing macro lens for said camera.

    Difficult question is which are best for me... the lens im looking though in amazon.co.uk at the price range of around 200£ ALL them have virtually 5 star reviews, which leaves me unable to make my mind up.

    Thank you for suggestions.

    Tata

    Sony makes 3 very good macro lenses for its A mount cameras - the 30mm F/2.8, the 50mm F/2.8 and the 100mm F/2.8. Of the three only the 30mm F/2.8 is available for under 200£.
