    I was looking into cheaper ways to get into the macro scene, andI think that these look good. If anyone have any photos taken with these, please show me or just share your experiences.good or bad..so I can know whether or not to keep looking.

    Thanks

    Either you left out the key words or there is an image lot loading for me (tried it in opera and IE7).
    can anyone see the image?

    I forgot to add. The 62mm is for my 70-300 lens. Im picking up a 58-62mm step up ring so Id be using that when I use the filters with my 28-80 lens. I dont know if this would make any difference, but I figured id let everyone know.

    They won't work that good, you best bet is to get a lens with suedo-macro, like a reproduction of 3:1.

    I know they wont give me 1:1 macro, but I need something lower than the price range of a macro lens. If these wont work well, please link me to a lens or something else that will. That'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
