For taking those super big insect/flower pictures, will adding the macro filter good enuff? The +1,+2,+3 etc... means bigger zoom? What abt macro lens? any such thing?? Is +4 the highest macro filter there is?? will adding macro filter with the UV filter works?

Wah... 3 closeup filter =x.. haha... btw, dun stack too much, will lose some quality (if your eyes can see). The more you stack, the more quality is lost(but some cannot be seen by us cos the loss is too little)
