    I know my DC600 has macro built in, but I was looking for something that might get in just a little closer.

    The SL951 is not recommended for auto focus cameras, but it has never been explained why this is so. Has anyone tried the SL951 with DC500 or DC600?

    The SL951 is for our film cameras or the DC310 series and lower. The field of view on the DC500 and DC600 is larger than the field of view with the film and DC310 cameras. You may experience a halo effect when using the SL951 Macro set-up with the DC500 and Dc600 cameras. We recommend the SL970 Wide Angle Lens.
