Hi all!

I am returning to photography after a few year break (my last DSLR was a Digital Rebel XT). I got the D5600 with a couple of kit lenses just so I can start learning how to use the camera, but I appreciate the importance of good glass. Because money is tight and I enjoy wildlife, landscape, and macro photography, I figure a very wide range of lenses are available to me to get the least expensive lens that constitutes the “best” lens available at that range.

Please give me suggestions of your pick for the least expensive lens at any range that you would consider the best pick.
