Raynox DCR-250. Quick question

Hi,
After the recent purchase of my Canon 600d and a couple of lens's, I decided last night to add a Raynox DCR-250 to my kit to try out some macro stuff.
My question is about attaching it to my lens's. I have UV filters on my lens's. Can I attach the Raynox to the filter or should I be taking the filters off each time? I have also bought a 49mm uv filter for the raynox mainly for protection.
Cheers, Rich

Raynox clip on adapter should fit over the UV filter on the lens if you really want - wouldn't try using with both UV filters in place and never even considered getting a UV for my Raynox... BTW - you sure the DCR-250 takes a 49mm filter ?

EDIT: Just checked and it is 49mm :)

Never had a problem with the clip on so would only use a step-down or step-up for a lens filter thread outside the range the adapter fits :)

Same here. Always used the clip on adapter.
I also wouldn't put a filter on the Raynox. I'm guessing that it will just be a cheapy one anyway based on the price of the Raynox.

Raynox arrived today. But weather crap so will have to try out tomorrow. I did also order a UV filter for it. Mainly for lens protection really. I'll try it with and without and compare image quality.
I will be taking the UV filter of the lens I attach the Raynox to. Just didn't want to be taking the filters of lens's all the time but it's no biggy. Besides as I get into this, no doubt I'll be buying filters for different things anyway. Need to buy some polarizing filters before I go on holiday in a couple of weeks.
Cheers, Rich

I done know if you can put a filter on the raynox when using the clip on adapter?
I don't bother with UV filters anymore. Only filter I ever put on is a CPL for specific shots.

Part of me wants to take them off. But as I live near the seaside and sometimes go there with the camera I am worried about any sand/salt in the air scratching the glass. Cheaper and easier to replace a filter.
