"Zeikos Lens Filters for D5000 "


US
          

I just ordered a lens filter kit for my D5000. It includes +1, +2, +4 and +10 close up filters. I can't seem to focus on anything (near or far, zoomed in or zoomed out) with the +10 filter on. I was using my 55mm-200mm lens. Is there some sort of trick to the filter that I need to know?

My initial guess is that the lens is too long for what the filters are designed for. (This is just a guess.) Does the +10 work OK on your 18-X kit lens?

You can certainly focus with the +10, it's just that it's pretty hard to figure out where!!! The hunt has to be slow and systematic, because the DOF will be very, very narrow at that level of magnification.

With the lens set to infinity, the focus point should be about 1/10 meter (10 cm) in front of the lens.
