Looking for a lens to take extreme closeup shots with....



A fixed lens (no zoom) will be fine, but I want sumthin with just a few inches of focal length...



What are my options?

Your question or inquiry doesn't make sense. Few inches of focal length?

Sorry, I'm not too camera savvy...





What I mean is I want a lens that I can take very close up shots and be able to focus from as little as a few inches away from the object....



Like if I wanted to take pix of my son's bug collection....

That should be a macro lens!

... if not use some diopters

and/or extension tubes (probably the cheaper way)
