I've posted this elsewhere, but would like anyone's' input.

I want to get into macro in a basic way and was wondering who could give me some 'fatherly advice' on the practicality of going the inexpensive way with the Opteka 55mm Close-Up Set (+1, +2, and +4) with 10x Macro Lens that I found while browsing.
Any input would be greatly appreciated since I know that famous adage of "sometimes what cheap is dear"

I would not advise you to get the inexpensive set, the sharpness and quality is not there. I,ll suggest the Nikon 5T and 6T, +2 and +2.9)if you can get them (they don't make them any more), the Nikon 3T and 4T,(same as above)the Canon 500D and 250D, (+2 and +4. You can stack them and get +6. You could also consider the Raynox 150 and 250. Hope this helps.

Check outthe thread below,the pictureswere taken with a 6T and 500D stacked.
