I have something I could try a Hassy 60mm filter but I think itís a plus 2. Itís sitting here doing nothing anyway. I have more leftovers than I can keep track of. Lol

Yes they were handheld but I can see a noticeable difference in sharpness when focusing. For example, peaking gets much more apparent with the close-up lens. This was not a precise test as I noted, but I think tripod examples wonít be too much different.


The impression of "clarity", or contrast perhaps as the peaking reacts differently, may remain pretty much the same. However, a fair comparison would be nice considering the images may serve as reason to buy an Elpro or not. I'm interested in how much black turns into something brownish for example. Thinking about it I'll get the Elpro 4 anyway, and sets of step-up and -down rings.

I think the Elpro 4 is worth it because it has a good sweet spot. Itís not just a contrast improvement, there is resolution gain as well.

However, close to MFD, the difference is small since we stay below 1m with close up lens. Starting at 0.7m, the lens goes to ~ 2m with the lpro4 so there is a noticeable gain.

If you mainly shoot close ups at 0.7m, the lpro3 or Nikon 5t are even better since the lens will focus at infinity (instead of 2m)

I have checked and my main "distance of interest" should be between 1 and 2 meters. So, I'll look for the Elpro 4, maybe I can find one with case fitting the lens and the step-down ring making it comfortable to toss into the bag somewhere.
