    Cheapest method.

    Reverse mounting an existing 50mm using a BR-2A ($30)
    Getting a macro filter (cost varies)
    Buying a proper macro lens ($600 - 1200)

    Use your current lens with extension tube($210 for a set of 3) or just invest in a Raynox CM3500 ($249).

    Cheapest option! With good pics.......
