Morning to all...

A few days ago, I took my 70-300 into one of our local photo stores to check out the 5T and 6T attachment lenses.........

Now, as I looked at the small print on a number of packages around the store, I was amazed by what I saw and everything was well magnified and sharp.

However, when I placed a quarter on the glass counter (the quarter was leaning against the 5T's box), I never could get the quarter totally in focus. The top would be in focus, but the bottom would be OUT of focus...or vice versa....

Was this my inexperience with such a lens attachent, or is this typical of the 5T and 6T lenses?? I did try a 105mm Micro (which was VERY sweet, and it had no problem getting all of the quarter in focus), though the 105mm is MUCH more pricey than the 5T (Obviously!!)

Anyway, I bought a 52mm and 62mm Hoya Red Filter instead.

Any thoughts or advice on the 5T & 6T attachment lens???

Many thanks!!!

ps...I did not try my DOF feature on my F5 while checking out these lenses..
