    Default Macro Lens

    Hi,
    I would like to know what are the advantages of a a Macro Lens over a close up filter?

    I got a Equote of $14 for a +4 and $45 for a Hoya Macro lens. What is rating of the Hoya Macro lens btw? +4? I could not find the specs on the net.

    Lastly, would u recommend the hoya macro lens over the canon 250D close up lens? which cost more then 100?

    To summarise, can u give your views on Hoya +4, Hoya Macro Lens, Canon 250D?

    Really Thank you for helping!

    Regards.
