And whatever works for one, don't always work for another. What works me, may not work for any one else. When I use the the 250 it's attached to a prime 50mm f2. When I use the 150 it's attached to any prime lens longer than 100mm. I no longer use it either on zoom lenses.
Well, physics is the same for everyone.

Using a high quality prime with a Raynox makes good sense for best IQ. Using minimum focus distance exclusively makes sense if magnification is the only goal. However there are times when subject distance becomes more important to me than maximizing magnification, i.e. with skittish or hazardous subjects.

My subjects aren't usually moving. Flowers don't move much except in the wind, and I try not to shoot when the wind is blowing. When I use manual primes, I use CIF with the Raynox of choice. But I still maintain close focus works better for me, than infinity does.

Great series of macro shots! You get really impressive results from that lens, tc and Raynox combo. TFS.
Best.

Been wanting to get my hands on a Raynox M-250 and after seeing all the samples in here, I think I will definitely get my hands on one.

You won't be disappointed. However, remember that results are a little unpredictable depending on the base lens. Generally a prime normal to modest tele works best. Zooms are unpredictable - sometimes the Raynox works well, sometimes there is vignetting at the wide FL but the central image will be very sharp.

Looks like I'll be joining the club very soon. Found a used Raynox 250 on the 'bay for a good price ($59.99 CDN, or about $45 US). It should be in my grubby little paws by Friday! WOOHOO!!

DFA 100 + Raynox 150

Head shot of caterpillar seen by my porch when starting my afternoon dog walk. All my gear was in a cabinet less than 10 away. I shot a lot of frames sometimes without the Raynox 150 but I’m sure this is a with.

Had Pentax 360 II on the hotshoe with a Magmod MagSphere as a diffuser.

My first post of my own Raynox results.Tamron 52BB 90mm f2.5 with Raynox 250 on KP, uncropped:







Same subject and equpment as above, without the Raynox, so you can see the difference.

This image has already been posted on two other threads, but I'll put it here because it was taken with a Raynox 250 on an Oly 75mm f1.8, Panasonic G9.
