hi bro, can i hv some advise from you regarding close up filter?
saw a canon close up filter selling at 200 bucks while another guy selling hoya close up filter +4 at 15 bucks?
y it makes so much difference?
look at it this way

why some so expensive some so cheap.

its the lens quality and construction which enable to make it take better picture
..

its a double element close up filter, apparently much better than the single element run off the mill hoya ones. plus, its 77mm threads, its a pretty large hunk of glass.
