What's a good price for that lens?

Tamron SP 90mm F/2.5 Macro Nikon Mount

Tamron sells interchangeable mounts so this lens could be used with any camera from Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Pentax, etc. Although this is a manual focus lens you may be able to mount it on your autofocus body depending on the specific model. The lens includes a removable Nikon mount.

TAMRON AF 70-210mm TELE-MACRO MC Zoom Lens

TAMRON SP 500mm MACRO LENS for CANON EOS NIKON MINOLTA

TAMRON SP AF 180mm f3.5 Di MACRO LD/MINOLTA MAXXUM 7D
CAN YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC TO WHAT LENS?
REMEMBER I'M A NEWBIE AT THIS.

You need a lens for your camera, minolta AF/Maxxum mount (not nikon or canon, or manual focus like MD). There are two versions of the Tamron 90mm macro that fit, the old and the new SP Di (digitally integrated) version. They seem to be well known as the best, so I just bought a used one on ebay. New, they are going for around $450. My understanding is that the old one is just as good optically, but lacks the new coatings. I could not find any comparisons, so I don't know if it really makes a difference.
