Very nice and sharp close-ups. Bug season is definetly begining to open here to, maybe I myself will infest a little in a macro add on lens. Shots like these definitely make me wish I had one

Hi Saly!

Great series of close-ups! Sharp and colorful. I like them all.
My Marumi +5 lens arrived today (thanks again Stefan and SquareOne for help), so I also will try me now in close ups.

Thanks DML and Rafal!

Stef - looking forward to seeing your Marumi images. That should give you magnification somewhere between the LC55 and Raynox 250, I believe?

@ Saly: I really do not know exactly, but I think so too. I will show here the results of course, but I need now bugs, flies, spiders and bees * lol *

The LC55 is a +2 and Raynox 250 is a +8. I'd be interested to see the results compared to the Raynox. Personally, I don't think Raynox is very good quality glass. LC55 is much better.

Saly, it is very difficult to make out who is enjoying the break - the bugs or you!

Clearly I'm having more fun than the bugs, Raghu. They were quite annoyed about having me around so close.

Great close-ups Saly

I'm still waiting for my +3 to turn up
