Nice shots Squirl!!

I also have an A2, and have been playing with macro shots a little. Stevkin I'll be interested to know how that setup works for you..

Meiko, I did get a response from B&H, they said it would be suitable for the A2, with the step up ring of course, but wouldn't say how well it would work. Fair enough comment I think.

Also they said I would be liable for import duties, vat, etc, so I'm relieved I found one here for a good price.

Will let you know how it works, hopefully next week.

If you guys are interested in higher magnification, the Raynox DCR-250 has turned out to be an excellent lens, and it's only $50. It's a +10 diopter rating (more than three times the power of the Nikon 4t) and the image quality is said to be as good as the Canon and Nikon alternatives. Using this setup with my Canon S2 I can take a photo only 1/2" wide standing about 5 inches away from the subject.

Here are some sample photos from Lensmate:

And here's one of mine:

I'm impressed with the review of the Raynox lens and impressed with your photo J1000.

Already have my 4T and enjoying using it. But will consider the Raynox for my next purchase.

Thanks for the info and welcome to the forum 8).

Stevekin.

i considered the DCR-250, but for my purposes, the Nikon is a better fit. I don't need that much magnification, and i like the Nikon's superior DOF. but the Raynox is a very good choice if you want to really get down to the tiny stuff...
