    Hi Chan and others who might be interested in Raynox macro lenses,

    Please refer to link below:
    http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/ws/eBayISAPI....m=260275696477

    Definitely much better than normal close-up 1-layer filters!

    Cheers,
    Jim, McGill.

    Hi Chan,

    The magnification is dependent on the focal length of your camera.

    IF you're not too sure, please bring the beetle to our place and I'll try to take a magnified picture of it. You can check on the spot if it is what you are looking for.

    Thanks,
    Jim, McGill.

    Commitment to satisfaction.

    TS should bring camera along to a shop, try the hoya, and try the raynox @ macgill's office. Use a coin or similar to test

    you'll lose infinity focus.

    if infinity is at 2.5m away, at a +10 dioptre, the furthest distance you can focus to is 25cm away.. not beyond...
    chezburgr i can haz?
