    Can't find a whole bunch on them but Bower seems to make decent low end glass that people seem to get really good results with.

    These links aren't about the exact lenses you're looking at but more the brand name in general.

    You may want to look into getting some extension tubes for now, much cheaper than some of the macro lenses and pretty decent results

    Never heard of those before but they make sense.

    Very cool, some great looking shots on that flickr account.

    Whoa. That looks sweet Dan, let us know what you think.

    Retail $469.99, what'd you get it for, and where'd you buy from?

    And what the hell happened to$100-$150?
