I need a macro lens for thisDiamond shoot - all which need to be enlarged well past the limits of teh XL1. Checked into the EF adapter and an EF 50mm f/2.5 but, combined, will cost $700 retail. Am I over looking a better and more cost effective solution? Are there vendors in NYC who will rent?
B&H will have it all - diopters come in sets of 3 or 4. The 14x or diopters alone may work fine but the 1.6 extender allows you to move the camera back so that the shadow of the camera won't (hopefully) interfere with the subject
