Raynox DCR-250

Are these any good? I was going to buy the Canon 100mm macro lens today, but stumbled across this, so in short do I spend 800 on a Canon lens for macro of 50 for one of these?

Any comments welcome.

Re: Raynox DCR-250

Many people get great results with the Raynox lenses. IIRC they come in two strengths and the effects they give are dependent on the lens on the camera at the time.

I've not used one myself, so with luck someone who has will be along soon. Marcin used to use one on a bridge camera and got spectacular results, but when he got his dSLR I think he went down the macro lens route.
