The Nikon 60mm f2.8 macro and the Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro would each be an excellent choice..

It really depends on what you are going to do with the images. If they are for the internet (monitor display) and small size you do not need much resolution and any lens will most likely do fine. If you need more resolution and better quality, then consider the prime macro lens' as last post..

The lighting, angles and back grounds will be your main concerns for the web. Look at how others position there products and light them..

Hi bros..... thanks for your replies......

These are the images I took using my 18-70mm lense with D300..

When tried to focus whole images to frame. but I failed... if I focus front part the back part goes out. I need to get the product fully in focus..

Those products are small. aprxmtly 18cm length..

This is the settings I used..

Lense - 18-70mm DX AF-SF/8ET - 1/100ISO 400Metering mode - Center weightedNo Flash (Outdoor light)Picture mode - Standard, Sharpeness +7Picutre Quality - RAW.

For these items, a 50 or 35 macro would work fine. For gold coins, you will need something longer, like a 100...

Just use a smaller aperture (BIGGER f-number). You used f/8. Since you're shooting still objects with a tripod, try f/16. Also, google "Depth-of-field...

Or buy the fullsize car, duh..

Seriously, what this guy said, no need to buy any lens for the car models. For gold coins, depends what image size you need but for web/small prints you'll be fine cropping...
