macro lens for the 5700coolpix 58mm?
 
Could any body help me I brought a Nikon Digital camera Coolpix 5700 but the macro feature is not suitable for taking detailed close up of insect specimens 0.2cm size, I was told that I could add a macro 58mm lens using the UR-E8 converter adapter.
Would this be suitable for this?
Nikon does not manufacture this lens (say's Nikon supplier)
Where could I get a lens that fulfill my needs.

The 5700 itself has good macro capability; however, it is not that good for 2mm subjects. The 58mm close-up lenses (a Canon?) cannot be attached on the UR-E8 directly. To photography 2mm subjects, you will need high magnification lenses. See here http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...ic.php?t=15584 and here http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...ic.php?t=17817 for the details.
