Hey folks. I recently upgraded from the D50 kit lens, a 18-55mm zoom, to a 18-70mm zoom when my 18 month old decided to see if my camera could handle a drop from the dining room table to the floor. Well, the camera was fine, but the plastic mount on the back of the lens just couldn't handle it. Anyhow, my new lens includes metal mount happiness, so I think I'll be safe next time. However, it also (I discovered after the purchase) includes a larger diameter set of filter threads. Now, this is good as it is a faster lens. But bad since I have to replace a couple filters. Fortunately, I only have a couple to replace. Anyhow. Before with my prior lens, I had a 52mm Close-Up filter set that worked great. I bought it off of eBay as discussed in this thread. And it included +1, +2, +4, and +10 adapters. Very nice for about $25 - $35 or so. Well, now I need to replace it. And knowing a little more now, I realize I can get these Close-Up filter sets as well from other sites and manufacturers. So I have found other options for my purchase. This includes the following close-up filter sets, all containing 3 filters - +1, +2, and +4. $40 - [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Adorama-Close-up-Filter-Set-Lenses/dp/B000ARA4W2/sr=8-10/qid=1167348764/ref=sr_1_10/102-8138705-8708123?ie=UTF8&s=electronics"]Adorama[/ame] $40 - [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Quantaray-67mm-Filter-Close-Up-Set/dp/B00009WBBU/sr=8-3/qid=1167348764/ref=sr_1_3/102-8138705-8708123?ie=UTF8&s=electronics"]Quantaray[/ame] $63 - [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Hoya-67mm-Close-Up-Filter-Diopters/dp/B00009R9CH/sr=8-4/qid=1167348764/ref=sr_1_4/102-8138705-8708123?ie=UTF8&s=electronics"]Hoya[/ame] $73 - [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Tiffen-67mm-Close-Lens-Set/dp/B00004ZCFS/sr=8-5/qid=1167348764/ref=sr_1_5/102-8138705-8708123?ie=UTF8&s=electronics"]Tiffen[/ame] Now, the questions I have to answer are: First: Do I really need the +10 close-up filter. In all honesty, I don't remember how often I used it before. I did slap the close-up filters on my camera on a regular basis. However, I didn't keep horribly track of which one and often switched around until I found the right match for the job. I SUSPECT that the +10 is probably optional... Second: If I determine the +10 is not really required, or not VERY required, then what brand of the +1/+2/+4 kits is the right choice? What do I get for spending $40 vs. $64 vs. $73. Are either of the more expensive brands (Hoya & Tiffen) really worth laying down the extra cash. And, just for frame of reference, all are within my budget. I just hate to spend more then is really needed. Thanks for your time and effort, especially if you read this far. I am new here, but not to forums. And I am very glad that I found what looks to be an excellent photography board.
