Hey guys,

I know they say you get what you pay for, but the budget is tight and I'm looking to get a new lense or two without spending too much. Just want to get something that I can take wide angle photos with for Real Estate and something for Macro/ up close photos of small items for ebay or Amazon.

Is this below a waste of money? What would you all recommend?

Lens Kit


I currently have the Nikon D3400 with the 2 stock lens it comes with; a 18-55mm DX VR and a 75-300mm DX VR.

I did some more research and found Nikon 40mm f/2.8G DX lenses for around $250. I believe this would work for indoors or macro photography.


Landscape and wide angles for similar cost.



I'm not really sure what the difference is; Micro, macro, wide vs landscape.
