    Default Can I do this?

    If I have a non-macro lens, can I attach a closeup +4 filter to it and take macro shots?

    I understand macro lenses have a extended focusing range.

    A +4 close-up filter will reduce the focussing distance to ~25cm, allowing to focus closer and hence achieve higher magnification of your subject.

    So a closeup filter can still work on a lens w/o macro feature lah rite?

    But I noticed macro lenses have a extended focus range.
