Hi,

I would like to get back into some macro shooting. I am currently using an X-T2, and I only own the 18-55 kit lens plus the 10-24 wide-angle zoom.

I am looking to do some close-ups of flowers and maybe some insects if possible. Generally will only do this when the weather is nice enough (so with enough natural light).

The 80mm Fuji options looks nice, but a 1000 € is a bit rich for me. Would anyone have tips or alternatives that could work? I am not looking to lug around a tripod so it needs to be usable handheld. I don't need crazy magnification either. Anywhere close to 1x would be cool.

Thanks!

Regards, Erik

Can’t remember where but I’ve seen some good close up shots using an Extension Tube with the 18-55mm.
