Close up kits or Macro lenses?
Jan 15, 2013

I was thinking about buying a macro lens but then someone I write with was telling me she uses a close up kit for all of her photos. Of course I am a little bit clumsy so I might be afraid of touching my lens. Trying not to touch it, at least until it has been touched if you know what I mean.

Anyways I saw a 50mm Sony Macro that was in like new condition for $109, which seems like a steal, though the working distance of the 100mm macro is more appealing to me, it is tough to pass that up..

What do you guys think? What macro lenses and or kits do you use? For reference I use the Sony 18-135mm lens so a 62mm filter is what I need for the filters right?
