Re: Macro with NiSi lens

Pretty much the same comment I made in your earlier thread

Diopter lenses in general don't add much when you use them with the camera at wide angle, because the camera can already get quite close to the subject.

A +1 lens will let you get the lens about 1 meter from the subject, even at full zoom,  A +2 lens will let you get to 1/2 meter, etc.

The NiSi is +3 so your working distance (with the camera set to infinity) is about 1/3 meter

The field of view is very shallow, so it's sometimes easier to put the camera in MF mode and move the camera to get focus.
