Re: Update 23-Feb-2013

I am just trying my first macro experience with a cheap close up kit (not achromat ) and I found +2 is perhaps the best choice for object not bigger than 1 1/2". So I am using this.
At full zoom image is clearly degraded with halos but seems solved at f/8 so I try to keep at x14 Max zoom an depending of lightning I can use f/4 or f/5.
So I think a good closeup lens may be better than this but it keeps me thinking that the camera lens itself should have something to do with this as in lower tele this seems to be better resolved.
Am I to wrong?
