Product Highlights
  • Decrease Minimum Focus Distance
  • +5 Diopter Lens
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • Single Anti-Reflection Coating
  • High-Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 77mm Close-up +5 Lens (NL5) 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.

With a +5 diopter, the NL 5 serves for the seamless extension of the range provided by the NL 3 close-up lens on a 35mm main lens (up to approx. 1:3.5). If you can tolerate a small gap after the NL2 close-up lens on a 50mm main lens (approx. 1:4.4-1:4), then you enter a little farther into the macro range with the NL 5 instead of the NL 4 (up to approx. 1:2.6).

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.

        Not good for me

            Comments about B+W 77mm Close-up +5 Lens (NL5):

            I purchased this filter to use on my Nikkor 80-400mm lens. The results were like looking through a milky special effects refraction lens. B+W makes some of the best filters you can buy, and I own several and would give them all 5 Stars. But in this case I believe this is just a combination that was not meant to be. I am exchanging them for the Kenko Auto Extension Tubes. At least I will not be adding additional optics.

                Comments about B+W 77mm Close-up +5 Lens (NL5):

                Very few zoom lenses will focus very closely, so if you want to be able to do an occasional detail shot this is a very useful accessory to have along. I bought the +3 and the +5 filters and they do stack too, so I have access to a good distance range. It's not nearly as simple or quick to use as a macro lens, and the image quality isn't as good as a macro lens either, but if you want the flexibility of a zoom lens and still want to go an occasional closeup shot, this is a great solution.

                  Great alternative for a Macro. Works great on all my 77mm lens. Even is useful in an artsy way on my 12 -24. Does cause the AF to search at times but I am normally in manual.

                      This particular size at 5X is a great filter. I got 2 and they don't stack (screw together) even though I was told that they would. But great glass for the $. I have a macro option for my kit lens now!
