Thank you Jon !
Your welcome. Also the suggestion by Seedeich to use close up filter elements on the front of a non-macro lens is a very good one to keep the cost at a minimum. It's been so long since I used those close up filters that it did not even come to my mind.
I just received a set (+1, +2, +4, +10) last night, and used them with the 10mm-30mm kit lens.
I have been very impressed with them. I'm sure its no where close to a dedicated lens but it scratches my hobbyist itch for micro on the cheap.
