I have FZ20-pemaraal PA62-Hoya super hmc pro1 UV(0)-nikon close-up 6t.

Normaly used fz20 with PA62 and Hoya uv filter.

Which are the best connect to make macro photo with nikon 6t?

Manual focus is requested or is better autofocus?

Spot af and spot exposimeter is good for macro?

In order:

1- FZ20/PA62/UV/6T (6t is the last)

2- FZ20/PA62/6T/UV (uv is the last)

3- FZ20/PA62/6T (without uv filter)

Best regards.

I would say #3.. The fewer air to glass surfaces in front of the lens, the better.

Manual focus, spot meter, #3, good light and tripod.

Hey Homeless,

To be honest I dont think they way you arrange it will make any difference. I have a similar setup and havent noticed any significant changes when the Nikon 6T was on the UV filter or on the adaptor directly. Because of that I always attach the 6T to the UV filter as the UV filter is always on.
The one thing I would recommend is an eyecup for the FZ. Dont worry about tripods they get in the way and for insect macros you dont have the time to set up tripods. Get a rubber eyecup for a few bucks and always use the EVF, the eye cup will add an amazing amount of stability.
Hope this helps.

The best eye cup is the Canon Rubber EyeCup for A1 or AE-1.

Try ebay or your local camera store.
