Greetings, this my first post here and I have a question. I Just recently purchased an FZ20 and would like to take some macro shots. Ive looked into the appropriate close up lenses. In regards to the Nikon 4t and 6t, is there an advantage to the bigger lens size or smaller lens size. I see they both have the same diopter. Or is it just a matter of preference? Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Well, the smaller thead may cause some vignetting. For the FZ20, go for the 6T. FZ5 is ok to use 4T.

I have another question.

Do you find it is useful to have both 5T and 6T to use individually (not to stack)? I decided to order 6T but don't know if I should order 5T at the same time or not.

Thanks.

Start with the 6t, play around with it and then decide if you want another macro lens. ZI chose the 6t because it had greater power than the 5t and when you baclk off on the zoom you get basically the same magnification as the 5t at full zoom.
