Any good Macro Lens?
Do you guys have any good recommendation for double elements macro lens/filter (diameter 72mm)?
Where can I get it?

You mean to say close-up filters?
You can try the Nikon's for double-elements. I'm not sure if they have it in 72mm size though.
Hoya, I know, has 72mm close-up filters. Not cheap though..
Are you using a Panasonic FZ-10 or FZ-20 camera?
If so, get the Phayee or Raynox (Yoshida) adaptor. They allow stepping down to 62mm and 55mm respectively. Hence, you can use smaller (cheaper) filters.
Nikon 6T's are double-element, 62mm filters. Their 5T are 55mm filters, IIRC.

Actually both the 5T and 6T are 62mm. 3T and 4T are 52mm. The difference is in their diopter rating e.g. 5T is +1.5 while 6T is +2.9.
