Just wondering has anyone ever used a Canon 77mm close up filter on a Sigma wide angle lens... Graham

I haven't but i know a couple of people who have and it appears to be an art in using them

Nobody has ever used a close-up filter on anything, because such a thing doesn't exist. ;) They're supplementary lenses.

The Canon ones are very good - they're two element lenses, which allows much more correction of abberations. I've only really used a 58mm one on a tele lens, though.
