close-up lens filters
If L quality glass is crossed off the list...how do tubes or filters stack up against the cheaper lenses? It's process of elimination time!
Think of the close-up lens filter the same as an extender, it enlarges the image, but the trade off is lower IQ.
With the tubes you can try all your existing lenses to see which one produces the image that you like. If you don't like the results you can always sell the tubes, but since you are taking very few pictures that need the close ups, that is the cheapest way to go, and it will produce very good results. After all it is not like a picture of rings will ever be enlarged to a 36x24 size.
