You can stack as many 6ts as you care too. You probably wont care to stack more than 3.

Willow - The hoya close-up set consists of 3 single element lenses (+1, +2, and +4; stackable to +7). Single element lens will give soft focus towards the edges. Dont waste your time and money. Stop spinning your gears and get the 6t and find out what it can do. You will be very pleased.

Fred's right Will. Go for the 6T if you are going Nikon. The problem with single element designs are that they are not corrected for CA. The twin element designs are corrected for that and less distortion at the edges. I tried a cheap +3 the other day.Although it was good, it was not great. They don't seem to resolve as well as the twin elements.

Hang on I did a page for a friend on it. Now his name is Ken and hes a bit blind so its big text LOL and itwas done for Ken, so ignore the name Ok :-)

The reason I knowan image is by the fine details. If we look at the hairs of the larger fly shots, they should be sharper and we should be able to see between the hairs. ........Heck I don't believe I'm talking about the hairs on a fly :roll:, I must be sick LOL. But I do know the difference between that simple+3 lens and good optics.

Anyway as Fred said, get the 6T IMHO as well.

All the best.

Danny.
