    I have wanted a macro lens for quite some time, but it has not been in my budget. The pics below were taken with my cheap macro setup - my Pentax K100D with Pentax-A 50mm f/2.0 fitted with a +3 close focus filter. Let me know what you think.

    Pretty good, I like the last one but the foreground leaf that is blurred is distracting.. nice shots!

    I agree that the last one the leaf in front is distracting, also in the second I don't think the flower in focus pops out of the background as much as it could/should. But the focus and DOF is pretty good for all of them and #1 has great colors and some pop to it.

    Thanks for the comments. You are right about the front leaf in #3.
