    Smile Raynox DCR-250 + Nikon 50mm 1.8D

    What magnification will I get from this set up? Do 'you' think it's worth getting DCR 250 when coupled with Nikon 50mm?

    Thanks

    Hi, I dun know about raynox on a 50mm, but I am using a Vitacon "macro+wide angle" combo on a D40 kit lens and here is a sample of a macro shot with only the macro lens:



    What do you think? I am very happy with it.

    Hi, have you tried already?

    I can't even get a focus (manually) using my D40, 50mm F1.8/55-200mm + DCR250.....

    DCR 250 + Pana FZ 7 no promblem though..

    try putting ur lens into infinity focus and go as close to the subject as possible, then slowly move outwards until you get sharp focus.

    i am using manual focus. when you use raynox dcr-250, you need to place your camera directly/flat in front of your object to have a good focus. try not to slant your camera.
