    Default Raynox DCR-250

    I did a search but couldn't find any thread on this. I just like to find out if any of you with D5000 using this converter? I know this is no replacement for the proper macro lens but for a starter to macro, how is this working out?

    Care to share if you have used one or best you own one.

    It's an excellent closeup lens.

    You can get it at Cathay Photo, MS Colour or Artworkfoto. It's approximately $120.

    You can also get it from Jim Mcgill. They allow testing before buying.

    I would recommend using it with a lens of about 100mm to 135mm.

    You are most welcome Victor

    Don't expect miracles over night. It takes time to develop the skill to shoot macro.

    Happy shooting!
