Hi Doto,

IMHO Raynox 250 will give you a better result compare to Stack up close up lens.. You can see techyuna And Mark1616 result in Panasonic section

Dov, tchuanye is a member of this forum and has posted astonishing close-ups - but I have my own doubts as to whether he had a Raynox DCR lens. Search by user and you can find his photos. Seemolf, Hiroshi, tcook, tiger(gim), Squirland many more great photographers don't post here any more, I don't know why, but it is better for you to search by name and see their photos. It's worth the time and effort. If I get the time, I will sit on the members list and recommend more names to you whose photos are a must-see for a beginner. (The other good photographers I know continue to post, so I haven't given their names!)

tchuane (Tan)started using the DCR 250 in 2007, previously he was using two close-up acromats lens,the Nikon 6T and a Sigma. I've been using the Nikon 6T and the Canon 500D, (seeattachemens below.The DCR 250 is very powerful and because the very shalow depth of field you might have problems focusing. The DCR 150 might be better for you to begin with, later on you can purchase the DCR 250. Hope this help.

Sorry I wavered from the topic. Raynox 250 is a powerful lens. A general search will give you many examples. One such is this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wulf/tags/raynoxdcr250/.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I find from Raynox's site that they have now introduced MSN range offering much more close up than even DCR 250.

thanks for your answers, some terrific examples on flickr.

do you set your camera settings to conversion close up lens when using the raynox or do you leave it as it is? I understand you can not use the flash if you use the close up settings

thanks

Theory says, you must set the cam to "converting lens"...Panasonic has that in setting.... But on practical front I can't say as I don't have DCR -250 ..

Next I feel tachuyana does use 2 flash gunwhile taking Macro..
