Re: Extension Tube or Macro Lens?

That would probably be my 16mm "pancake," Marc. That will allow me to get in even closer.

These aren't particularly sharp, but they're not all that bad, either. After further research, though, I have decided against extension tubes and I am still debating the merits of getting a legacy macro lens versus getting a 2-element close-up lens. Since the prices can, in some cases, be about the same, the issue is one of quality.

Gary, which E-mount lenses are you intending to use for your macro photography if you decide for close-up lenses ? The quality of the Raynox and Marumi close-up lenses is excellent, you will not degrade your IQ a bit with these.

Do you happen to know what level of magnification you would like to reach ?
