I am getting interested in trying out macro, I own a D90, 18-105, 70-300vr and a 35 1.8 prime. Without having to buy a dedicated macro lens, what is my best option to shoot macro with these lenses? I know there is some kind of adapter but I'm not sure what to look for. Some affordable ideas with good results would be appreciated. Thanks for any help.

Our board's a little quiet sometimes jsmith, it can take a while to get a reply.
Macro photography is not really my thing, but I remember my previous camera combined with a telephoto lens did okay at macro. You'd have to check the minimum focus distance on your 70-300mm to see how close you can get. There are also adapters that allow you to mount your 35mm (reversed) on the front of one of the other lenses, but since I don't take macro photos, I wouldn't be able to tell you anything specific about that.
