    hi bro... using close up +4 filter.... your focusing distance should be around 250mm...
    and prepare to use manual focusing as in moving your camera in and out of your
    subject to get sharp focus...

    just tried doing macro photography using this set up...

    250mm is the distance of your subject from your lens.... using close up filter will lose your lens capable to focus infinity so it means you are restricted to focus from 200mm to 250mm only...
