    Macro: Pro: Amazing lens, very sharp, 1:1 duplication, focuses very close.
    Cons: More expensive than tubes.

    Tubes: Pro: Cheaper than macro lens.
    Con: Image quality not as good, doesn't have f/32 like most macro lenses.
     
  3. macro = expensive

    tubes = cheap

    that's all you need to know, kthanxbye

    I don't get exactly what you are implying by the rolls of electrical tape...

    Surely you're not suggesting you..... no.... nevermind.
