Re: Lens for flowers and insects on hikes.

Another alternative might be to try an achromat with your 16-50. If you do not have one, see if you can borrow one from a friend for a day to see what sort of results it gives you. A Raynox will give you great results, either the 250 or the 150, or even the two in tandem with an adaptor. If you use both you will have three different focal lengths to play with in your pocket. You might have to be a little closer to the subject than you like, but they're easy enough to use handheld and there is nothing more portable than an achromat. Plus you still get the benefits of using the 16-50 😊. I use a small LED torch for lighting, which is something you may have in your pack already.

Of course, the 16-50 may not work well with an achromat but no doubt someone here will tell you that to save trouble. It's just an idea to consider.....
