    The Gap Between 50 and 150

    I've got a great Tamron 17-50 (love this lens), and then a birding Sigma 150-500. I've found that the gap between these two is where of like to take photos of the kids and other family members.

    I'm toying with finding a non Vc tamron 90mm. This would be useful for macro photography for local orchids and other flowers as well as the odd frog or two that my daughter lives finding.

    It's there anything to watch for with this lens, or other similar lenses I should look at? My budget is $500 maximum, $300 preferred.

    Also should add I use a d7100 which has the screw drive for auto focus.

    Thanks for any tips.
    D5200 D7100 Limited talent, but lots of enthusiasm.

    I have a 90mm Tamron non vc macro lens *Canon Mount* it takes great photos and was easy on the budget.
    Good for everything from tiny 3mm Insects using it on Manual and MF to get very close up, flowers taken further away, and people even further.
    I have four Macro lenses all different focal length and I have never had a bad macro lens yet..

    I shoot with Canon and Olympus Cameras.. And My iPhone SE
    And sometimes a Little Old Panasonic DMC-TZ7
