Nice spider but your sensor needs a dusting!

So what have you got against broccoli Mike? And Gareth on the whole anything that insects don't crawl on are to be avoided !.... on a more serious note are the add on the front close up lens things any good for this kind of stuff? My gut feeling is that you pays yer money and you takes yer choice ! (or maybe it's the broccoli)....jeff

I have an aversion to putting anything beginning with veget and ending in able in my mouth.

Best clip on macro to put on the front of a lens is the Raynox DCR-250, forget the others.

Is the last post a spam advert?

Two other pseudo-macro avenues for not a lot of cash are the Miranda 28mm 1:2.8 macro (which is actually a mega close focussing lens - and really sharp) and the Pentacon 30mm 1:3.5 which has phenomenal resolving power and can be heavily cropped. It's actually a Meyer Optik Lydith but since it doesn't say that on the front they don't sell for Lydith prices and you get super pictures for Pentacon peanuts!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
