I know, it's not a macro (or, in Nikon terms, Micro) lens. But, want to use it that way sometimes.

Though, for budget's sake, i was considering a Tamron AF 70-300mm(F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro), but, ended up buying Nikon 55-300mm for overall value. I tried to utilize a closeup filter, but it was a frustrating experience.

Is there any to utilize for macro shot by using any technique, or any close-up filter, or any other way ?

Do you have any experience to share?

p.s. My camera is a D5100

You can try extension tubes, but 55-300 mm zoom seems awkward for macro use no matter what method you use. – Olin Lathrop Nov 1 '13 at 13:47
@OlinLathrop Bad news for me. Anyway, I also have a Nikon AF 50 1.8D. Is that good to go ? – kmonsoor Nov 1 '13 at 17:01
