I am relatively new to photography, and have developed an interest in macro photography. However, the prices of macro lenses are too high for me to afford I was thinking of investing in a close-up filter instead, but I'm curious to know if it makes a big difference to use the filter with a prime lens or a zoom lens.
I have both the nikkor 18-105 vr lens (thread size 67mm) and the 50mm f1.8/D (52mm). What I believe is that the prime lens will be a better choice because from what I've read, light is very important in macro so the larger aperture will benefit macro photography cause of the bokeh and lighting, but the zoom lens has an advantage in being able to zoom right? So I'm not sure if the difference in lighting for the zoom lens and my prime makes a considerable difference for the inconvenience, if let's say I want to shoot moving objects like insects.
I just need a little advice so that I can decide whether to get the 52 or 67mm filter thanks!
