    I prefer extension tubes with the 100mm macro and the 2xTC with the 300. I also recommend focusing rails.

    Have to take it apart to put the protective covers on,(cheap plastic, a bit of a pain to remove!)

      Comments about Raynox DCR-250 2.5x Super Macro Lens:

      Small enough to fit in any camera bag, and great image quality to boot. Until some good quality extension tubes are released for the Fuji X system, this is one of the best options for close up work if you don't feel a need for the 60mm macro. I've paired it successfully with the 23mm even -- requires some cropping of the frame but does produce useable results. The included mount is decent, but I'd advise step down rings if you plan to be moving around a lot as it is not the most stable set up. Included lens caps also leave much to be desired, and the plastic box it comes in is pretty large -- be on the lookout for your own pouch to slip this into.

            I use the DCR-250 to take Macro pics. There is a learning curve, however. Very easy to install with the included adapter on my Canon SX-50 bridge camera.

            Comments about Raynox DCR-250 2.5x Super Macro Lens:

            If you are looking for an add-on lens to increase magnification for macro photos, this one is very high quality.This will make any lens you have a super macro. But be aware that it is extremely hard to keep focus and will take time to learn to get good pictures on a regular basis. You need a lot of light, patience, and steady hands and you can get great pictures from this.
            Using a Canon 60D and my 100mm F2.8 L canon lens, I'm pretty happy with the results.

            This attached to most of my lenses very easily and securely. IT does exactly what it claims to and allows you to get much closer to your subject. I haven't used this extensively yet, but it is great for photographing plants and other stationary objects. Definitely worth the reasonable price!

              Easy to attach to my Fuji XF35mm. It allows me to focus much closer than before. Not a 1:1 but I understood that before my purchase. I am now considering getting a legacy 100mm+ to use with the DCR-250.

              Comments about Raynox DCR-250 2.5x Super Macro Lens:

              I have found that it is easy to use that lesn with zomm lens. I tried with Nikon 70-300 mm lens as well as Nikon Macro 105 mm. With 70-300 it is much easier to use than with 105mm macro lens.

              DCR-250's magnification is amazing. picture quality is also superb.

              Focusing is a bit pain although this is true for any macro lens. I suggest manual focusing and move the camera front and back until it finds a focus point.

                                For an inexpensive macro lens the DCR-250 works great with my Canon kit 18-55mm and 55-250mm.

                                  This is an excellent option for those not wanting to drop big bucks on a macro lens for occasional macro shooting. Glass quality is excellent. It takes a little practice, but is easily mastered. You can get some amazing shots. Easy on and off of the lens to take a quick shot if not needed. A lot of fun for minimal funds.

                                    Completely unimpressed with the raynox. I have seen some good results from other users so i bought it to play around with and after using it, my investment in extension tubes was a much better decision for my 5DMKIII than the raynox. it degraded image quality way too much, wrecks autofocus and reduced DOF to just about 0. Extension tubes on the other hand didnt reduce image quality at all since there is no glass, autofocus still worked great, and gives a much more manageable DOF. I guess if you're looking for a cheap way to get super macro, this would be fine but i have used better diopters and macro accessories that i would get before getting this again

                                          Used on a65 with tamron 60mm macro to achieve above 1:1 magnification. Price is great and the product is easier to use than extension rings or bellows. Highly recommended.

                                              I am using it with my Fuji S5200 superzoom and I am impressed how great pictures I can get even with this old camera. Like with all macro, a lot of light, a lof of patience, and a steady hand (or a tripod) is needed, but it's truly worth it. Even the camera's lens cap fit the Raynox lens so I can protect it when it's on the camera.

                                              The only thing I do not like is that the one of DCR's own caps cannot be put on when the lens is in the adapter. Which means that I have to always remove it from the adapter after I am done wth shooting, or keep it unprotected. But it's a minor thing, unless someone needs to switch quickly often between shooting macro and normal.

                                                Excellent magnification and resolution for an inexpensive price. I carry the lens and clip on adapter in a Ziplock bag in my pocket. I needed a 49-52mm step-up ring, to fit the DCR-250 on my Fuji X100s. No vignetting with my setup.
