    Gary, if you want a macro lens, I say get the 100 mm Canon. It is amazing: fast, sharp, and fun to use.

    Yes! It rocks!

    I was looking at the 100 Canon but the cheapest I found it was $400 and some change.
    I just bought 2 21" Dell wide screen monitors. That sucked up my bank acct.

    But I was looking at that Raynox for some time. It looks like fun.
    Does it need a lot of light? Do I want to buy a ring light with it?

    I assume not as I never use flash with my macros - prefer to work with natural light.

    but do you mean the Raynor 250 Macro one that clips on?
    The $50 one?

    Looking for a good lens for a Canon XTi.
    sorry for the delay in responding...

    Yeah thats what I use ~ Raynox DCR-250 clip-on.... http://raynox.co.jp/english/dcr/dcr2...exdcr250eg.htm

    But be warned DOF is very very small, but it's so cheap that if you don't like it, you can allways ebay it, and only lose a $20

    I hope you don't mind me posting 2

    The first is a thrips on a hydrangea which I like for the colour and the distortion of the hydrangea. Apparently they like LCD screens.



    The second is a flesh fly which i had published in a magazine over here but they rotated it 90 degrees for some reason.



    Both taken with a pentax *istD and cosina macro lens with a 2x teleconverter to give twice life size, lit with a pentax flash.

    Where to post???

    I went back and forth about where to post this (the flower thread or the insect thread). In the end I decided to post it here because I need an ID on the insect. The flower I know is a thistle.

    Any guesses?

    Still no guesses?

    Here's a couple more of the thistle and bee. I still don't know what kind of insect this is. It really was the irridescent green color that you see on your monitor if that helps with the ID.
