The plus 2 and plus 3 are handy to have with you when you are walking or hiking as the load will be lighter and less bulky. If you plan on using both the +2 and +3 together to double you the length of your cokin holder. Just so you know before you leave home. One more thing use it at home to adjust and don't use auto focus as you will be working close and auto focus gets confused when workig up close. The five star is because for a close up that isn't a macro is great. My hats off to the French.
This is not so much a filter as it is an add-on lens. The macro effect is great with no loss of light and having to adjust the f-stops; no compensation is necessary. There appears to be some softness around the edges. But used with a slight telephoto such as 85 to 100 mm, one will acquire optimum focus without distortion.
