to satisfy your curiosity, just get a Close-up Ring of +3 or +4 and start shooting... should set you back about ... S$30? cheap way to get into macro without the heavy commitment of a true macro (like the EF100mm f/2.8!)

have fun...

From the start I got a teleconverter. Then a close up filter. Then I got a reverse ring adapter. Then I got some extension tubes. And in the end I finally got a macro lens.

Having a macro lens would probably make your life easier. The accessories can come by when u need more magnification.

It is bulky and unwieldy, stabilising, focusing, having the necessary lighting is a real b*$%h. Dun think you would wanna start out macro that way (first).
