Tungsten filter.  I'll look into that.

I have one of those, too, but was told it was for distance shooting, not
close-ups.  For close-ups, I use the magnifying filters, and can put on
multiple filters to get really close shots.  I admit to not having tried
the telephoto lens with the close-ups.

The advantage of the filters is that you don't have to take off your old
lens and risk getting dust in there.  They just screw on.

Thanks for the ideas!
