Thank you so much for sharing. I'm still researching the subject including the lens and add ons - converters etc. I've had some fantastic input from EPZ members regarding lens and converters and I must say this article is very encouraging and made me more enthusiastic to actually get out there and now check out the Lens that EPZ members have recommended.
THANK YOU

one thing i would suggest iis use a tripod or monopod and remember that your apertures work in reverse so you should start at f8 and go up if need be you want to keep in mind that you want as much in focus as possible and try to keep your subjects square on ! which i know isn't always possible. Just a few things that were pointed out to me when i started macro photography

What is that supposed to mean ?

Presumably, that small numbers = big apertures

That means that 2.8 is large aperture a;lowing less depth of field and f 22 is smaller aperture so more depth of field which is required in macro although it depends on how much you want in focus thats were your personal preferece comes into play1 hope this helps,also you'll probaly need a flash set up or additional lighting mos serious macro [hotographers use a ringflash if the light is poor
