Thanks what a great thread! I am just starting into Macro. I bought a Tamron 60 macro lens and I have ordered the pop up diffuser. If it fits too loosely on the lens. I am going to try to attach it to a spare Cokin A filter holder I have. $10 for a diffuser sure fits my budget better that a lot of other lighting choices.

Mine fits fairly well on my Tamron 90, but it does tend to pop off sometimes. I hot-glued a strip of rubber from a bicycle inner tube into the lens opening and that helps a lot. Here's what my mod looks like:

Pop-up diffuser with added  strip of rubber to make it more secure on my lens.
