Hi guys!

I'm pretty new to photography (slightly less than a month) and one main reason why i do so, its because i've always liked macrophotography.

Okay, so here's the thing. Because i'm still schooling, i've not enough budget to get a dedicated macro lens. So I really wanted to try out and have this two options.

-Raynox Super Macro Conversion lens
-Nikon Uniplus Tube (25mm)

I've only done a minor research on both the items. And i think the key difference is that the IQ of picture will be affected if the Raynox lens is used, whereas a loss in f-stop will be faced if the tubes are used.

I've actually bought the extension tubes already, but as im still using the 18-105mm kit lens, i'm not sure which of the above two will give me a closer feel to macrophotography.
Should i get both? Or just use the tube or the Raynox lens?:dunno:
Would like to seek help on this.

Many thanks!

Erm, this is a newbie i took with my kit lens and the extension tube. :confused:

Hey Vynn, there's no "closer feel" to macrophotography - Either it is a macro or not.

Good job on doing the research all by yourself. Go get the raynox first and see if you'll like it - there's more to macro than just lens. Visit the library and there are books dedicated to macros.

Good luck.
