I would like to get into macro photography.. Just wondering what the best macro lens would be in the $150-200 price range? I would like to get the Panasonic/Leica macro lens but not in the budget. Btw my camera is the Panasonic Lumix gf3.

Have you considered extension tubes? Take a look at the Wikipedia article they're a lot cheaper and if you're just starting out in macro photograph are often a beeter way to get started.

I settled on the Raynox dcr 250 it's a not a dedicated macro lens.. But it has some of the best reviews I've seen and the results are fantastic – Michael Fedorsha Dec 31 '11 at 16:56
