You would likely be happier with one or more achromatic macro lenses. The achrormatics usually consist of two elements rather than the low priced single lense closeups.

I use a Nikon 6T 2.9 diopter, an Elpro 2 4..9 diopter, and a Sigma 1.6 diopter. These can be stacked on top of each other to increase maginfication.

If I could only have one, I'd go for the 6T. The same lense is also sold as the 4T with 52mm threads.

Here's a link to some others with approximate prices.

Available 2 Element (Achromatic) Close-up Lenses

Here's a shot with the 6T and Elpro stacked.

dont want to be rude but if my macros turned out like that i would not be pleased, very noisey. the examples in the link i gave are quite clear. do you think mine would be worse then than , with those cheaper lenses?



what cameras that?

Maybe the picture of Rayko is a 100% crop.......

I wouldn't be to sure that the pictures on your link are really made with that macro lens. The info of that picture tells that teh photo was made with a sigma camera, with an exposure time of 1/6000........

But for that price on ebay, it won't harm you, but the ^t that rayko mentioned is known for a good macro lens for the FZ30.

I recommend a 6T (eventuaLLY + a 5T) for normal macro, and reversed WA 50mm for extreme macros like this one (head of an ant):

When you say you use a WA 50 mm reversed, which lens is that? I think I remember you mentioning using an old Canon FD F1.8 lens, is that the one? If so can you still get hold of these, are these lenses old 35 mm film lenses and I assume you could just get a step down ring to fit the FZ30?

Many thanks
