I shoot more than just cosplay stuff...I really wanna buy a macro lens. I was looking at the Nikon 60 mm and well as a sigma 105.
I have one of those...didnt mention it because its not something I would really use for photoshoots
Personally, I wouldn't use a macro lens for photoshoots but I know people like to use them for that purpose. I have the 60mm f/2.8 and it's a nice lens for it's intended purpose. As with most macros, the f-stop changes with focal length so even if it's f/2.8 that's only at the zoomed-out distance. The 105mm is very sharp. Might suggest renting it for the weekend and see if it suits your needs then scrounge Craigslist for one as many people buy then give-up on macro photography.

Aside from that, the 35mm f1.8DX is a light-weight versatile prime.
