So 1:2 is enough for me. If this is the case, will those china made 2x telephoto Len converter attached to my kit lens be able to product the same effect as the macro lens.?

Not really... You need to try. I guess the loss in quality will be important. The DImage 7/A had a beautiful dedicated teleconverter that matches perfectly the lens. But when I tried to use it on a different lens, the quality was not the same. I can not believe those cheap adapters can really help you.

Try to get the Minolta MD 100 mm f4 Macro. Otherwise, you can buy new the Vivitar/Phoenix 100 mm f3.5 Macro http://www.adorama.com/SY100MN.html on MD mount.
