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!
