Very new to macro/micro photography world. Really enjoying it during the winter months!

Wanted some feedback on using 105 VR + 68mm tubes + 6T filter.

Been playing around with the Kenko DG tubes and really like the results. I am getting ~1.9 reproduction ratio with 68mm extension at closest working distance. I am now looking for a way to get to reproduction of 2.5 and am thinking that adding a 6T filter to the extension tubes might do the trick according to Tony Jeffree's spreadsheet.

Wanted some feedback on the quality of results with 68mm tubes + 6T combination on 105 VR from anyone that has experimented with this combo before I go ahead an purchase the 6T filter.

Haven't seen any spreadsheet that can quantify the quality of results with different tools (i.e. diopters, tubes, etc). I guess this is too complex to work out using simple a spreadsheets and must be measured depending on the use case using test equipment.
