    Heard there also Raynox DCR-150 too, not sure which to get?

    I interested to take some still object plus sometime insects, flower etc...
    btw do i need a extension tube too? Thanks.
    A macro lens is enough for most of the applications, you may want to consider a TC if you want a higher magnification. Btw, do you have an external flash? You'll want one.

    Next up, practise FIRST. Keep shooting and learn how your lens work.

    Also you may want to consider getting a GOOD tripod and mebbe a macro sliding rail.

    What's wrong with stacking just a Raynox 250DCR? Though with extension tubes, you can also achieve greater magnifications but Raynox serves the same purpose and is more convenient when you want to remove.

    I use the Raynox 250 DCR with my Canon 100mm macro as well and IQ is still pretty good to me.

    Just some examples below:

    SGCamerastore is selling the one with autofocus ext tube for $95. Planning to get it and see if it can work with my 135 f2L or even 300 F4L LOL.

    Anyone used that af extension tube before might want to share their experience?

    Not all ext tubes will work with AF. You better take you camera and lens down to test before buying.
