    How much do each of these filters usually retail for ? I understand that 4T is 52mm, and 6T is 62mm, but magnification wise, are they the same ?

    jus got some help frm my fren...

    these close-up filters (nikon 3T, 4T, 5T, 6T n canon 250D, 500D) r mainly for tele-lenses tat cannot do macro / close-up...

    so i guess nothin' beats a true macro lens...

    but really no idea how it would turn out if they r fitted on a macro lens...

    oso...dunno watz the main diff between these filters n Hoya + filters apart frm the prices...

    maybe a betta "in-focus" area cos Hoya + filters reduced the focused-area a lot or maybe jus betta glass with coatings?

    Hoya + filters are single glass element filters, they tend to be a bit blur at the edges, the Nikon and Canon filters are 2 glass element filters which will give image quality.

    3T and 5T are +1.5 diopters
    4T and 6T are +3 diopters

    The 4T and 6T are stronger in terms of magnification.

    And they work great on macro lenses.
