I have seen many advertisements for Wide Angle lenses that are also Macro lenses. I bought the Fuji WL-FX9b Wide Angle and am wondering if it could be used as a Macro also.:|

Probably not. Macro lenses are meant for close ups, wide angle lenses are intended for a wide angle shot.

Yeah I`ve seen them also, my local Jessops camera store sells a wide angle 0.42x converter with a detachable macro close up lens,just wondered how that would work???
