    you only have one choice since you're using a digical, you can only use a close up filter, but that only allows you to go in closer, hence sometimes it can be impractical

    there are some macro add-on lenses around, but mostly are combined together with a Wide-angle lens... as long as ur camera's lens is threaded... tehn u'll just have to buy some step-up or down rings...

    my conception on close-up filters, is they help the camera to focus closer, true???

    personally i'm looking for a Wide-angle lens, +4 Close-up filter, a more powerful teleconverter....
