Dawg, don't sweat it. :-)I think I paid around $60 CDN for my set. That's couch money for you Americans!

Bear in mind, that these are rather difficult lenses. (they're called "filters" but they're curved and they focus beams of light (and can start fires... really) so technically they're lenses) The DOF is ridiculously small at full zoom. Use a tripod. (and a tape-measure with the chart - I must have been really bored yesterday:roll

Cheers,

Hi Tom,this picture is really good and I'd be afraid to guess how close you was to it !!

I have a set of Tiffen close up filters,have only used them a couple times.Now that I have the Tcon I'll have to try this.

Works for me. Good job. Tell me, how accurate are the measurements for the Tiffen? I'd be interested in seeing how my quick chart applies to different brands.
