Just playing around with my new Raynox DCR250 macro lens this evening -- I'm very impressed with it!

Man, that is one powerful lens!

I'm considering a macro lens at the moment and the CDR-250 or maybe the 150 are on my list. Looking at these pictures, I think it may be too much for the shots I'm looking to take.

Your shots are good and clear though. The second one looks downright pornographic! :G

Thanks, RedStickMan. Actually now that you mention it, uh... I see what you mean about the leaf tip. Heh heh.

I going to get a DCR150 for shots that don't require the power of the DCR250. With both lenses I'll be all set.

Here's another shot, this time of a Venus Flytrap. Chomp!

Very nice series, Doug. I, too, see what RedStick man meant. Yep, that one does have a unique reminder to other things.

Great Cossword picture, clear and perfectly in focus. I want the 150, but the 250 in that shot doesnt seem as limited in depth as it ussually looks. Its a lot more than the 1mm of focucing you ussually get from it in most pics :-)

Romerojpg, I haven't measured (yet!) but I estimate that the DOF is 2 to 4 mm when shooting at f8. Not much wiggle room but you can still get good results if you're careful.

That last shot with the pencil is both unique and very, very clever. Great thinking and macro work Doug.

Danny.
