You don't want to be shining bright lights or flash at a new baby.

I suggest using a close-up lens (Raynox or similar) on a standard lens, as this avoids the big loss of light given by a macro lens or by extension tubes. You also retain auto-focus and stabilisation.

(A macro lens is basically a lens with built-in extension tubes.)

After all the glowing reviews I ordered he Raynox 250... $50 used and on it's way.

can't wait to start testing and will post a few shots here on my 50 1.8
Thanks again.
