Very nice. I've looked into these adapters over a macro lens, are they easy to use?

Yes, you just put it over the lens with the adapter (max 67mm) and you can start. Use a tripod for sure !
You can still use autofocus or you can focus manual, what's not difficult with the Nex.
And it's cheap ! Only 70$ !

Succes !

So you need some kind of adapter on your NEX lens as well? As I read it, the Raynox will work on lenses from 52mm to 67mm, so you have use a step-up adapter first get to somewhere in that range.

NICE!

How did you get the fly to stand still? I mean how far away was the front of the lens to the fly?

After some research, I'm now a little confused. The 250 has an inner thread of 43mm and 49mm outer. The adapter works on lens of 52mm to 67mm, kit lens 49mm.

Dendoor, as mentioned above do you need a separate adaptor? Finally I would guess the 250 requires a tripod for good results whereas it maybe possible handheld with the 150. Do you have experience of the 150? Being able to handhold with give the 150 more versatility.

THE adapter fit the 18-200mm lens with the 67mm diameter. I use à tripod because it's very difficult to shoot at the hand.
Adapter is inclusief with the package.
I don't have any experiance with the 150mm....

I've been wanting one of these. I've seen amazing results with the kit lens.
