Yes, it's a portrait lens. It's not a macro. It is a very nice lens but won't do what we really want it to for a reef tank macro. You can look into a Sigma 105mm f2.8 or a Tamron 90mm f2.8. Both are highly reguarded and very nice lenses and also can be found on ebay and CL. You can also look at B&H dot com and Adorama dot com for used equipment. Neither lens will auto focus on the D40, but for macro shooting you're better off in manual anyway.

I'm not saying I'm Batman. I'm just saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in a room together.

Current Tank Info: 80 gallon rimless Deep Blue lagoon
