But we already covered all this on the first page of this thread. Just to recap. OP already has an iPhone. Has mirroress interchangeable lens camera with 18-55 mm kit lens. Wants to convert kit lens into a macro lens.

Ergo, the objective of this thread is: to convert the 18-55 mm kit lens into a macro lens.

I am still trying to work out what the point was of you posting a photo of a fly taken with an iPhone?

Another option is to pick up a Olympus Tg3. They are amazing little macro cameras. They not only shoot to 2 cm from the lens they have built in focus stacking. Great quality photos to boot

I'm now wondering if it's a wind-up.
