Thread: New Sigma lens + EX-25

  1. #1

    Default New Sigma lens + EX-25

    Hi.

    I'm really interested in doing macro shots and I'd like to purchase a macro lens.
    I though about the Sigma 18-50mm f3.5-5.6 DC. Will this and the EX-25 tube yield very good magnification or should I just use the kit lens + the tube?

    Wif this Extension tube U can do certain magnification on the kit lens already, inclusive of 40~150mm lens that U currently have.

    Best is to get 50mm Marco Lens, wif this lens U can do Portrait and Marco together. Combine wif Ex. Tube the result is more magnification.

    If Budget is the key, just get this Extension tube can liao.

    Ok thnx! So I'll get the ex tube and play with it first. Is the EX-25 stocked in shops like Cathay or AP ? Or do I have to place an order?
