Hi All:

I would like to try out macro photography using closeup filters, mainly to shoot butterflies and flowers. May I know what is the recommended closeup filter to get if I would like to put it on my Nikon D80 kit lens?

Thank you very much.

You can get close-up filters from CP. There are different values of magnification in the filters (eg. 2X, 4X, etc). Know what you want before getting, but I would rather get a dedicated Macro lens.

Do note that your lens end is quite large? 72mm thread? If so, most close up filters has smaller thread e.g. Nikon 6T-62mm. You will have to try and see if there is severe vignetting. I tried using the Raynox 250, and confirm that has alot of vignetting.
