    This picture (no cropping) is taken this morning with a +10 HOYA close-up lens mounted on a 50mm prime lens.

    Pardon me for not getting the head in focus

    Well, it seems close enough for me, I might consider getting it. Since its a two-piece glass lens, there shouldn't be much image degradation will there?
    Thanks.

    I guess this could be a good solution for luckyorange (user) too?

    Personally, when using Raynox 250, I felt the best range of zoom is 55-200 or 70-300mm.
    Manual focus is a must and the best tactic is either handheld or with monopod as you may need to adjust the camera position (in-out) instead of turn the manual ring. U may need practices. Here's a sample shot using a $90 40-150mm kit lens and raynox 250. Camera E3 on monopod and flash metz 48.
    U may need to use the small aperture setting and best has some form of image stabliser (lens / body) to help get good sharp photo etc.

    Hi Diavonex,

    Thanks...

    luckyorange, there's a few think you can do to maximise quality:

    1. Use prime lens if possible

    2. Shoot raw so that you can have more control of exposure, contrast, colour and sharpness

    3. Use small aperture opening e.g. F11, F16 or F22 to get maximum DOF

    4. Use tripod or diffused flash to minimise camera shake

    5. Use higher ISO if necessary

    You can use auto focus when shooting subject like flowers but for insect it's good to use manual focus to get precise focus

    If the lighting is bad, using a external flash with diffuser can improve the colour and contrast.

    Please take note that the magnification is governed by the diopter (e.g. +2, +4, +10) and focal length of lens.
