Hi Guys, <BR>I have a Nikon D100 with a 28-200 (3.5-5.6 I think) Nikkor lens. This lens does not have macro feature. I saw this on Ebay and thought this would be a cheap way to solve my macro problem, without buying a macro lens. <BR>Has anyone used these lens adapters before? How well do they work? What are the drawbacks compared to a macro lens? <BR>At this price, there's gotta be a catch. <BR>Thanks in advance. <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/52mm-Close-Up-Macro-Lens-for-NIKON-D40-D40X-D60-D100_W0QQitemZ270471842169QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCamer a_Filters?hash=item3ef960c979" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/52mm-Close-Up-Macro-Lens-for-NIKON-D40-D40X-D60-D100_W0QQitemZ270471842169QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCamer a_Filters?hash=item3ef960c979</a>

I'd try extension tubes first over those. I have a Nikon 6T which works pretty well but it's more expensive glass then those have.

Thanks for the reply Rich. I'll look into extension tubes first.
