Default 14-54mm w/Raynox DCR-250

I think investing in a lens with a 58mm filter thread (possible the 14-42mm) would get better results. The 14-54mm vignettes BIG TIME with the DCR-250 no matter how far out I crank it. 52mm would be even better.

After today's torrential rains.

The Raynox lenses definitely get you close. My only complaint about them has to do with working distance, as in there is none. If you can't get physically close enough, you can't use them. As you've shown here, when you can get close, they are capable of excellent results. My favs are 2, 4, 6 and 7.

Nice shots, very sharp, great colors and DOF.

The Raynox is a great option for macro photography.

Regards.

Hi Gary,

Vignetting or not, you've done a great job of really bringing the detail of the droplets out of the images.

Luv 'em.

Thanks a lot, guys. Epic?! Wow! heheheh I agree, Greg. But, for the cash outlay, they're a pretty good option.
