    Hi all,

    I have taken shots with and without Raynox DCR-250 for comparison.

    #1 Taken with 100mm Macro


    #2 Taken with 100mm Macro + Raynox DCR-250


    One thing to take note is that although you be able to take much high magnification, the focusing distance is reduce by quite alot.
    I think its quite difficult to take a macro shot of insects with this combination.

    tcy,
    wow raynox with 100mm.
    I have not tried the raynox with the 100mm, but
    I have used extension tubes with the 100mm.
    focusing distant is much nearer, very good for small insects.
    But best to use it with a tripod or monopod.

    em, if focusing distant is nearer, wouldn't it scare away the insects?
    I thought it will be better with longer focus distance.
