Got a question. If I myself own a Macro lens. Do you think it's a NEED for me to buy this product?

Don't mind my posting a pic here...
If a 1:1 magnification given by a dedicated macro lens is not enough, using Raynox lenses can help to get that extra bit of modification.
The above pic was taken with DCR-250 + DCR-150 stacked on Sigma 150mm macro lens.
One thing though, focusing is extremely difficult & it's good to have live view to aid focusing in this case

hi, do I need an adapter to mount this on nex 5?
The Raynox Universal Adapter will snap onto any filter thread of 52mm to 67mm
my 1st shot with Raynox 250
Pretty good for 1st shot
What lens did you attach it to? e.g. 50mm or 135mm
hornet [raynox on 100L]
How well will this work on nikon 55-300? I've read reviews that it does not focus well (vignetting at 55-200 range)
Am considering this against the DCR 150
You mean, after attaching the raynox to 50mm, the min. focus distance will become 8cm? IIRC, the min. distance for the 50mm is 0.45m.Originally Posted by crystal1993
May I ask where did you bought your raynox?

Pardon my intrusion. Some stuff I would like to suggest as corrections.
Minimum Focusing Distance
Minimum focusing distance does not depend on focal length. It depends on the dioptre rating; in this case, the Raynox DCR-250 is a +8.
Minimum focusing distance = 1000/dioptre = 12.5cm.
Magnification of subject is dependant on focal length of the lens, i.e. 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, 300mm, etc. A 100mm lens with a +8 (Raynox 250) will yield a bigger magnification than a 50mm lens with a +8.
Magnification of subject is also dependant on dioptre rating. A 50mm lens with a +8 will yield a bigger magnification than a 50mm lens with a +4.
Depth Of Field
Depth of field is dependant on focal length AND focusing distance. This doesn't apply to macro only. It's a lens characteristic.
Basically, the closer you focus, the thinner the depth of field.
The longer your lens focal length, the thinner the depth of field.
Here's a very old thread, which is also a Sticky in the Macros gallery.
Here's another very old thread with questions I raised long ago. Perhaps it might be useful, I hope.
