D.I.Y. macro with 50mm 1.8
Jan 31, 2009

I would like to buy a 50mm f1.8 lens and I understand that I can get pretty decent macro with this lens and an extension tube or a teleconverter. My question is which are the pro's and con's for each combination, and if it will still autofocus. Some pictures for examples would be great.
Thanks for your input.
