My 50-200mm is WR and it's has a 49mm filter size.

Btw, the 50-200mm WR is great with the DCR-150 attached. I did a single in month with this combo and I have to say, the couple did a fine job of macro work.

nice.....it is my understanding that close up filters will give you more magnification on a longer zoom lens or focal length.......I don't really know but the close up filters are introducing me to "macro"/close up photography without a big expense until I have/get the experience to justify or want to make a much better investment

Could be that it was the only way to make the new lens WR. Don't know the answer to that either.

Here's the album on flickr using the above lens and the Raynox DCR-150.

I have both of these adapters, the DCR-250 for shorter focal lengths below 100mm. The DCR-150 for lengths longer than 100mm.
