I have a chance to buy some Hoya close-up filters, +1, +2 & +3. Are they helpful in macro work or do you really need a +10? I know it depends on how much of enlargement that you want, but just wondering if anyone uses them? I have a FZ15.

The close-up sets are single element lens and will give good focus at the center with increased softness towards the edges. You will get much better results with a dual element lens which flattens the focus to give sharp images to the edges. The most popular dual element lens are +3 dipoter nikon 4t (52mm) and the 6t (62mm). Either will work as good as the other. Usually it depends on what size adapter you have.
