hi! im a fz5 user and was intrested in buying macro filter for my camera.. any recommendation? or points that i shuld take note before i buy?
The Nikon 4T (+2.9) would be suitable. Though the thread is smaller than your cam, one would usually be at higher zooms for the magnification, and the vigneting issue will not be there.

You may want to consider the ext slave flash set up.
See here how someone did it:

No, 4T and 3T are 52mm, 6T and 5T are 62mm thread.

I am not so sure abt that as I don't own any of it (I have the 6T and a normal flash). Perhaps the other pana users can advise.

when i was getting the 6T i went all over sg to look for it. john 3:16 told me they ordered a 6T for a guy b4 and watied 3 months. i ordered my 6T from MS and tillnow no reply. i dunno they forgot abt it or the stock nv come in. in the end i got a 2nd hand 6T.

6T is a wonderful piece of magnifying glass... much better than hoya +4... Definately...

Can try Lords at Lucky Plaza... they usually have quite a few pieces of 6T...
