Re: New born lens choices

Consider adding a close up lens to an existing lens. I add the Canon 500D (+2) diopter) to my 18-105 VR and 55-200 VR for close ups. The cost is low, the filter is small and lightweight (which means that I take it along wherever I go) and the IQ is good. Even better, the VR works somewhat so that hand holding close up shots is easier (note that VR does not work very well at all for true 1:1 macro, but does work somewhat in the 1:2 reproduction ratio range)
