The B+W 77mm Close-up +2 Lens (NL2) is a close-up diopter lens which allows you to decrease the minimum focus distance on any lens, in turn increasing the effective maximum reproduction ratio of your lens. Additionally, you can combine close-up lenses to increase their strength and to fine tune your close-up settings.

The +2 diopters of this close-up lens focus at a distance of 50cm (1.6') with the lens focused at infinity. For the normal lens it is a stepless extension of its close-up range to approximately 1:4.5. On short to medium telephoto lenses it extends the NL1 close-up range seamlessly (with an 85mm lens to approx. 1:3.5 and with a 135mm lens to approx. 1:2.5).

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter has a single anti-reflective coating, which helps to improve light transmission to over 98% while preventing internal reflections and ghosting. Additionally, it features a brass filter ring for increased durability as well as jamming prevention.

This filter decreases the minimum focus distance of any lens, providing macro-like results.
The maximum magnification achieved with these attachments will depend on the focal length of your lens as well as the actual close focusing capability of that particular lens
Single anti-reflective coating helps increase light transmission to over 98% while reducing reflections, flare, and ghosting.

        Comments about B+W 77mm Close-up +2 Lens (NL2):

        I bought this to use on a Nikon 12-24MM f/4 lens when I use it in an underwater housing to sharpen up the corners. I fully expected it to vignette below 18mm. However, when I put it on the lens and shot a series of pictures at all f-stops and focal lengths of this lens, I never detected any vignetting at all while reviewing the shots on my computer. The pictures were all very sharp and clear. These shots were all done while on the surface and not in the housing and its dome, but I am encouraged by the results thus far. If this does prove to be the case, it will be a most pleasant surprise. I had previously contacted B+W and asked them about the possiblity of it vignetting on the Nikon 12-24. They said it would. I decided to go ahead and try it out. I have other 77MM lenses so I could use it on them if the vignetting proved to be too extreme. So when I got it and tried it out, I was very happy to see no evidence of any vignetting at all. However, this may not be the case on your particular camera/lens combination, so be aware of this possibility.
