Close-up Lens Sets for Nikon 1 Lenses??
8 months ago

I have macro lenses (105VR and 40mm) and the FT-1 for my V2 and they work great, but sometimes I am out with only my V2 and a kit lens and a photo-op for a bug or flower presents itself and I can't get in tight enough with the kit lens alone.

I have seen some forum members using close-up lens sets for macro/close-up shots that turn out very nice and am wondering which ones (40.5mm) you use, both brand and magnifications. (+1, +2, etc). Also any other recommendations.

I have a Raynox 250 but am looking for something smaller (flatter) that just slips into my pocket in a filter case. I have seen some of your results here so I know folks use them and the results are ok. Any suggestions on which ones to get and how 'you' use them (focus distance, etc.) ???
