Nikon D900 Close Up Lens Versus Canon 500D Close Up
Jul 9, 2012

I am looking to get a close-up filter for my 70-200 f2.8 for when I don't want to carry and extra macro lens.

So please refrain from telling me a true macro lens is better. I understand that and simply want the option to carry a macro lens in my shirt pocket.

There are a number of reviews concerning the Canon 500D close-up filter 77mm. Most of them report it to be very good but it's around $200 for the screw on lens.

I see one listed for Nikon for a 77mm thread named the D900 but I can find absolutely no reviews and it is half the price. I'm inclined to believe it's half the quality but I thought I'd check to see if anyone here has used one or better yet found anyone who can compare it with the Canon version.

Thanks
