Its already at max magnification 1:1. I need an extention tube or a doubler to increase magnification.

Thanks Igor.

Great detail. I'm starting to get into macro but haven't built up the courage to get close enough for wasp pics yet. You have a nice set on flickr.
Thanks, for sharing.

I just got a great extension tube $9.77 - Macro Extension Tube/Ring for Pentax SLR/DSLR Cameras - Photo & Camera. It was $10.00 metal and works great. dealextream.com has a lot of good gear.

Tube works great for magnification, without loss of details. Personally, I prefe a PKA tubes, which is sometime difficult to find.
