How much do each of these filters usually retail for ? I understand that 4T is 52mm, and 6T is 62mm, but magnification wise, are they the same ?

3T n 4T ard $40 - $50...5T n 6T ard $60 - $70...

6T is stronger than 5T n 4T is stronger than 3T...

I have a 105mm macro and I am also thinking of using one of these lenses.
Anyone know which one works best for my lens?

Thanks

jus got some help frm my fren...

these close-up filters (nikon 3T, 4T, 5T, 6T n canon 250D, 500D) r mainly for tele-lenses tat cannot do macro / close-up...

so i guess nothin' beats a true macro lens...

but really no idea how it would turn out if they r fitted on a macro lens...

oso...dunno watz the main diff between these filters n Hoya + filters apart frm the prices...

maybe a betta "in-focus" area cos Hoya + filters reduced the focused-area a lot or maybe jus betta glass with coatings? :think:

Hoya + filters are single glass element filters, they tend to be a bit blur at the edges, the Nikon and Canon filters are 2 glass element filters which will give image quality.

3T and 5T are +1.5 diopters
4T and 6T are +3 diopters

The 4T and 6T are stronger in terms of magnification.

And they work great on macro lenses. ;)
