    Is it possible to use Raynox DCR-250 with 18mm-55mm lens kit or 50mm f1.8 lens?

    Hi,

    I have a question that whether we can mount the Raynox DCR-250 macro lens with the 18mm-55mm lens kit or 50mm f1.8 lens to make a macro lens? If possible, how about the performance? The macro lens for a DSLR is so expensive.

    The DCR-250 is able to mount with lens which filter thread is from 52 - 67mm, but I mostly see it is mounted with P&S camera.

    Thanks for reading my dummy question.

    Info taken from Raynox site:

    DCR-250 Super Macro/Close-Up lens
    You can simply "Snap On" DCR-250 Super Macro lens onto the lens filter threads.(52-67mm) and it will be able to take macro images with minimum distortion.
    ( Use manual focus mode while the lens is attached.)
    Magnification : 2.3X compare to 18-55mm macro image size.
    Lens construction : 2G/3E Optical coated glass elements.
    Front filter size : 49mm
    Rear threads size : 43mm
    Size/Weight : DCR-250 53x18mm/60g.

    I have a the Raynox 250 and I use it on my Canon S1 IS and get great results. Here is a picture of a Canadian twenty dollar bill. I circled the area that I zoomed in on.

    Dodo,

    Interesting, could you let me know if you are able to get this to work?
    I own a Canon 400D myself, wouldnt mind to try out a more economical version for macro shots.

    How much does this cost?

    Krz... macro extension tubes might be the best solution.

    is a 50mm macro out of the question?

    maybe a sigma 28mm macro f2.8?

    I just wanna to achieve some kinds of these photos:



    [Source: http://www.vnphoto.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5165]
    The author used Panasonic FZ20 + DCR-250 and his techniques

    I wonder whether when we mount DCR-250 to 18-55mm lens then we can get similar quality (of course I need to practice more)?

    I'm still undecided between S3 IS and an DSLR. Each has its pros and cons.

    the lens DCR-250 itself is just around 45$ including shipping and tax (if applicable).

    Raynox has sample images captured by Canon 300D and DCR-250

    I would think that other brands(Pentax, Canon, Nikon) and 18-55mm lens could achieve the same
    Actually, I dont live in the US, otherwise I will give it a try
