    I haven't really done it, but I've seen others doing it.. basically both lens have got to be the same filter size..

    good method : Use a coupling ring to screw both lenses back to back, or modify one yourself.

    bad method : use masking tape.. works, but might do some funky damage to your white lens paintwork.. hehee

    mpenza,
    think there're a couple of threads here abt lens coupling; they can
    give u high degree of magnification... don't think they act as a teleconverter though...

    ..NuTs..
