Raynox 150 vs 250
In reply to HappyPooPants, Jul 19, 2013

The 250 gives a lot more magnification than the 150.

The 150 is a 4.8 diopter lens, the 250 is an 8.0 diopter lens. Here are some comparison shots

So, the 250 may get you closer than you want to be for eye reflections

By way of comparison, the Canon 250D is 4.0 diopters and the Canon 500D is 2.0 diopters.
