Anything you might recommend for a little less dollars to start out?

Get a Minolta No.1 on ebay right now for 15 USD (55mm, > stepup ring), and then look for Minolta No.2 or the Sigma Achromatic Lens (for a longer distance, but cheap).

Try to find used items wherever you can. Start with any +2dpt lens lens and then get a stronger one and maybe a lighter one.

Thanks. Are any of the, what appear to be, cheap kit lens any good for this? I see them on Amazon and elsewhere for a very low figure for up to 3 or 4 lens. Appear they are available in 52 mm.
