Thread: What close up filter for macro?

    Default What close up filter for macro?

    I'm looking for a close up filter for my Tamron 28-75 lens.
    What's your recommendation for insect, flora shots? And at what kind of price?

    Try getting a Nikon 4T. It has a 52 mm thread and a great macro filter for pana' users. Do avoid getting a Hoya +4 because its quality is not as good as the 4T.

    That's a very expensive filter we're talking about here, right?
    Canon has the 500D which is expensive but without the thread size I require (67mm).
    For beginner's sake, I'll just start with Hoya or Tokina... I'll take up the Canon / Nikon with decent primes if I'm really addicted to it.

    I understand that we focus to infinity and use the close up. What kind of close up distance do I need for insect shots so as not to scare them away? Macro experts please advise.
