Re: The Raynox stuff is really pretty neat stuff..

Of course a set of nice but not great "close-up filters/lenses" is also a great way to dip your toe into the macro world for under $25 as a rule. Sure they IQ won't be perfect but it is enough to give you time to decide if macro is really for you. Then maybe Raynox or dedicated macro lense will be worth the cost. Still the Raynox is not all that much more but look at their website to see all the options offered in their system.

The photos I've seen with plain close-up lenses have been pretty ugly. Soft, especially in the corners and a lot of fringing. For the difference of $30, there's no way I would get a non-achromatic close-up lens.
