    Hose Clip question

    If I want to put a hose clip (/jubilee clip) onto a piece of hose which has an external diameter of 22mm, would I be better off buying 16-22mm clips, or 22-30mm clips, as these are the only sizes they seem to come in :?

    Unipac Website

    For those who are interested, seems Unipac have finally got a website, which contains the full range of products http://www.unipacpet.co.uk/products_01.html Curiously, the website says the 2-3mm gravel only comes in 12.5kg sacks, and not 25kg. Is this true?

    Whats the difference between the 50mm f/1.8, and the 50mm f/2.5 Macro? I understand the aperture is a little wider on the 1.8, but why is it not marketed as macro whilst the 2.5 is? and why does "macro" make it more expensive?
