    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:

      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.

                          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.

                                        I use a Fuji hs30exr, really good image quality. A little difficult to focus but is solved with practice.

                                        It does exactly what it says it does. it really helps you get up close and personal with the subject. It limited my capture range because the lens is smaller than my camera, but that's to be expected. I gave it one less star than 5 because if there's even a speck of dust on the lens my camera focuses on that and not the actual subject. But that's not really the dcr-250's problem. All in all, a great buy that I would recommend to others.

                                          The lens is very good addition to my gear. I us it with Canon 70-200/4L IS and very satisfied with results.
                                          You just need to understand how to shoot macro to get superb results. Use manual focus and additional light (like external flash unit with diffuser), use f stops starting from 8 or 10.
