Re: Macro shots taken with the EF18-55mm lens?

The instructions are on my site, on , but is simply threadding a male/male ring on the front of the kit lens, and screwing the normal in the ring, inverted. Both lenses will be face to face, and the kit lens mounted on the camera, of course.

The benefits, are extremely high magnification. You are simply using a very high quality close up attachment lens (a 50mm) but a very fine one, high quality corrected optics. That's it.
