I would really like to have a macro lens. The problem is not which one since I can't afford all the ones that I think I would like to have. I know that doesn't make much sense.

In the past several high-end Nikon users have recommended a Canon macro lens that attached to the filter threads. Not sure which one to get (size threads). They said to get the largest one that I could possibly use, and then stepup/down attachments for the rest of the base lenses.

Then I have seen other "macro" lenses that attach to the filter threads in an assortment of magnifications. Of course the assortments are all for only one size, e.g. 67mm. I'm not thinking that the quality of these "lenses" could even approach that of even those from the dark side. However, I was thinking that this might be a good way to explore exactly what would be suitable for me.

Any suggestions?
