OK - now I see what you are saying, thanks for explaining what you meant and of course you are right (I tried to say the same thing but not as well as you did).

Originally I thought very little about close-up lenses because of the adding another element aspect. The one I had tried was poor quality and I wasn't impressed at all. However, the macro lens I ended up buying (very inexpensive one) comes with a "matched adaptor" to allow it to go to 1:1 - essentially a close-up filter. It doesn't take away from the sharpness of the lens or cause any flaring or affect the images at all (other than the focus), so I've revised my opinion of them in general. They are much easier to deal with than extension tubeswhen you want to focus to infinity, so I wouldn't necessarily rule them out for macro pictures (though I would buy the best I could find). But it's also one of the reasons why I'm now thinking of upgrading the lens to something else.

No! Say it isn't so! But I still think of myself as only an advanced beginner, there's way too much I don't know about photography to have that many posts. Can I go back to 1? Pretty please? Just because I've been occasionally vocal doesn't mean I know much, really.

And now that I've posted this, my number has just changed again. Thank you, all for the congrats.
