Canon Close up lens 500D /250D compatibility with canon EF 70 - 300 mm F/4-5.6 IS USM
Jul 10, 2011

I currently have a canon EF 70 - 300 mm F/ 4 - 5.6 IS USM lens which I use in my canon 500D body. To enhance macro photography I am in a thought of purchasing either Canon Close up lens 500D (58 mm) or 250D (58 mm).

My question is,

(a) have anyone tried Close up lens 500D or 250D with this particular zoom lens? how is the image quality?

(b) Are the combination compatible? I mean after fixing the 500D in front of this zoom lens, can it auto-focus?

(c) If not, can you suggest some better compatible achromatic lens from any third party manufacturers? My budget is 150 - 200 USD max.
Regards
