    Hey Photographers,

    I own a Cannon 1001, I'm in need of an cheap macro lens. I've searched everywhere but frankly I can't find what sort of lens i'll need. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction? thanks in advance.

    1001? Do you mean 1000D?

    >Cheap

    pick one, unless you want to use a legacy lens or macro tube.

    Or maybe 1100D?

    Don't think you'll find one for less than 300-400 euros or so, but be sure to check this list.

    The cheapest lens on that list is this one and it actually performs very nicely. Your wallet will be about 400 euros lighter but it doesn't come cheaper than that, apparently.

    I just happened to stumble upon this video on Wimp.
    This guy's setup is quite ghetto, but that doesn't prevent him taking amazing photos.

    They have cheap macro adaptors for many lenses. I have a macro/wide-angle for my kit lens w/ Canon 600D, macro turns out decent. The wide-angle gets bad vignetting, but for the price I'm not going to complain.

    Best bet would be buying a K mount adapter and looking for a 50mm f4 Pentax dedicated macro
