Dioptre for Nikkor 105 VR
Posted 18 May 2007 - 03:12 AM
If I get a Nikkor 105 VR with its 62mm filter thread what make and strength diopters are people using? The aim is to get more magnification than 1:1
I'm interested in something that you can actually go and buy rather than something that is no longer sold.

attached is a chart with good info for some diopters including the Nikons and a sample pic I tok with the 105VR and the Nikon 4T.
As a word of caution, especially for a new guy like me, shooting like this is a lot of work. My DoF is very small and shooting in Monterey with some swell in a bulky drysuit takes a lot of patience. I love the results though. A very powerful focus light helps alot.

People here have shown that the smaller 3T and 4T work well on step-up rings, too. Not tried those myself.
