"Question about Nikon close-up attachment lenses"


US
          

Hi I have a Nikon No 5T and No 6T close-up lens which I bought used. I never use them and was wondering what they might be worth.

thanks

Phil

They normally sell on ebay for $100-$200 each. Other places they can be purchased for less. I haven't gotten one in a year or two but one well respected online vendor was selling used ones for $29.00 each. I picked up several from them.

The 5T and 6T tend to run around $100 each. Optically they are quite good - and stackable. Close up lenses do add glass whcih can be a disadvantage, but the quality of the Nikon 5T and 6T is excellent.

The 5T and 6T work very well with the Nikon 105 macro lens. They also work well with the 70-300 and an adapter ring.
