raynox is dual element.. very high dioptre ratio.. maybe abt +10?

hoya is single element, dioptre +4 only

Hi Chan,

The magnification is dependent on the focal length of your camera.

IF you're not too sure, please bring the beetle to our place and I'll try to take a magnified picture of it. You can check on the spot if it is what you are looking for.

Thanks,
Jim, McGill.

Commitment to satisfaction. :bsmilie:

TS should bring camera along to a shop, try the hoya, and try the raynox @ macgill's office. Use a coin or similar to test

Can i focus at all range (distance) with raynox or onlt one fixed range . Someone pls share.thks
you'll lose infinity focus.

if infinity is at 2.5m away, at a +10 dioptre, the furthest distance you can focus to is 25cm away.. not beyond...
