My camera is NIKON D90 and I am looking for the following type of lenses. Please note that I do not have a very large and deep pocket, unfortunately; so while suggesting please keep it in consideration.

Macro/Micro Lens: I have already come across TAMRON 90mm. Is it really very good lens? My main concern is Sharpness and lens should be around 100mm focal lens so that I can keep a workable distance between me and the subject. Please note that I would prefer a non-DX lens so that it is compatible with my old Film SLR too. Is there any other lens worth considering?

Moderate Tele Zoom: I already have 100-300 SIGMA AF-D DL lens, and it is about 150-450mm which is very attractive focal range. But I'm not really 100% happy with the output (in terms of sharpness at extreme end of 300mm) and D90 has a pretty bad tendency to overexpose the scene. Hence I'm looking for other lenses in this focal length range [100-300, 200-400 full frame] preferably full frame (compatible with Film SLRs). Again the Sharpness of the lens is of utmost importance. Lens may or may not be VR. Please suggest with price.

Thank you

I've always liked Nikon lenses, I know you say you're on a budget, but you might have to make a little investment for quality.
