as the subject suggest.

i'm getting soon, so i wish to ask, what stuff would i need. i still don't know the difference between a close up and a TC lens. basically i want to get v strong zoom.

maybe i'm misunderstanding the terms used all over the forum, basically what i want is

eg. i want to be able to take a good zoom in picture of a monkey above tall coconut tree. prefably zoom until all the facial details can be seen clearly.

i'm not so much into macro. YET.

so, any suggestions? something affordable would be pleasant like $100+ odd.

i know canon has the tele con lens offering 2.4x, but i'm not sure if this is what i should get. anyway 2.4X x 3X is like 7X max? which would be a little too little? anybody can suggest?

i do realise i need a tripod.

thank you v v v much.

A close up filter allows you to take close up photos of an object at a nearer distance than the minimum focus distance, mainly for macro shots. If you want to take photos of an object at far distance, you will need a telephoto convertor.

can i use both the close-up filter and telephoto convertor at the same time?
