Re: Close up kits or Macro lenses?

I would jump at the  50mm macro for that price! Close up filters would cost you about the same, but never give you the image quality.

Also you can get practice in for the techniques used for macro.... it's a different style of photography, and needs to be learned - so go for it! You could always upgrade to a longer macro lens if you get into it in a serious way, then you can decide which lens you really want!

Still not enough time to take pictures....... Is there ever?
