Here are some of my first pictures with the Raynox DCR-250 macro lens. Another one can be found in the thread "What is it?".

Congratualtions on getting the dcr250. Are these handheld shots? If so, it looks like you obviously have a steady hand. It also looks like you're getting a maximum dof. Are you setting the aperture at f8?

Excellent! Favorite is the 3rd. Can always tell a dcr250 macro.

Yes, they are all handheld. Aperture is f8 at all pictures except from the third one, where it is f6.5. But there was enough light, exposure times are between 1/80 s and 1/125 s. And only picture4 was taken at maximum zoom. Hardest thing was to keep the focus where I wanted it to be.

Is this Raynox considered to be better than the Nikon 6T?
Anybody know?

Very nice close-ups

"better" than the 6T? if i'm not mistaken, it's 2.5 dopter, and the 6T is 2.9. i don't think the optical quality of the Raynox is any better.

Not necessarily better but certainly more powerful. The 6t is +3 diopter; the dcr250 is +8. So in terms of magnification, the 250has almost 3x the power of the 6t.
