    Lens design always involves compromise. I love macro photography, but the ability to focus closely obviously affects other performance aspects of a lens....otherwise they'd all be macros. I think the lenses focus close enough for most general photography. If you need to do true macro though, you'll need a different set-up.
    I like the first color one with the reflection of the keyboard.

    i use a Raynox DCR 250 on the front of my 18-55 lens ( can be used on pretty much any lens as it has variable size lock on grip upto 62mm)

    great bit of kit for under £40 and sample shot here

    I had a Raynox a long time ago that I used with my old superzoom and I can second that.
