Product Highlights
  • Creates Macro Effect
  • Decreases Minimum Focus Distance
  • +1, +2, and +4 Diopter Strengths
  • Dual-Thread Design for Combining Lenses
  • Multicoated

The Hoya 52mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set is a set of three close-up lenses for use in achieving macro-like results with almost any camera lens you pair them with. Close-up lenses are magnifiers that optically decrease the focal length of a camera lens it is placed on. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between your camera lens and an object. Magnification can then be obtained while photographing an object by moving the front of the camera lens close to it.

The magnifying power of each close-up lens is indicated by its diopter strength. A close-up lens with a higher diopter number provides more relative magnification and can be combined with other close-up lenses to increase or fine-tune its effect. These lenses are multicoated to help reduce flare and improve light transmission.

Close-up lenses decrease the minimum focus distance of almost any camera lens, providing macro-like results.
+1, +2, and +4 strengths allow you to vary and modify your desired close-up effect.
Dual threading permits you to combine the close-up lenses together or pair them with filters.

          I'm not a pro photographer, but I love that I can get macro shots at a great price with these. Yes, they do cause aberrations but I find their performance to meet or exceed my expectations. I have a lot of fun with these.

            Once again B&H came through for me. I can't afford the expensive stuff but love to play with all aspects of photography. The kind gentleman at B&H turned me on to these filters and I am having so much fun taking close-ups of everything.

              These close up lenses are a hoot. Multi coating is a must in my opinion and few products have it at this price. These diopters add many options to my existing lenses at a very low cost. I am having loads of fun experimenting with my new toys. B&H surpassed my delivery expectations and I am happy with the product.

                    Making the transition from film to digital after many years. These filers are easy to work with and provide an easy and relatively inexpensive means of doing close up work. Multi-coating is the way to go. No noticable distortion regardless of the combination of filters being used.

                      I bought the 3 lens kit and it comes with a very nice folding lens storage wrap. It is exactly as described but, I wish that I had bought the single +3 closeup lens. It would do almost everything that the 3 lens kit would do for me. I don't need the extreme of a +4. I was not aware that a single +3 was available.

                        Headline tells everything. It is not a replacement for a real macro-lens (due to embedded magnification) but if you are willing to take occasionally few close-ups - this is what you need.

                          I use these for macro photography of flowers and insects. Im on a tight budget because I am only a student so high quality new lenses are out of the question. I ordered these thinking they would be a good in between until I save enough for a dedicated macro lens. But when I tried these on the two lenses I have. My kit lens and a 55-200mm zoom lens I was astounded by the quality. The DOF is reduced. But the quality for the price is uncomparable. I would highly reccomend this kit to anyone who's on a budget and is looking for a macro lens.

                                I've been testing these filters with a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Macro lens and a focusing rail, clear optics have given me very good results. The DOF is pretty shallow with these filters, so I'd recommend focusing rail and focus stacking technique to get decent DOF.

                                This is the way to get some macros without spending a lot of money. I only do macros occasionally so didn't want to spend a fortune on a macro lens. I purchased the close up kit along with a Nikon 50mm f1.8 and have had very good results so far. My only complaint is the case that came with the filters. The filter in the pouch near the closing flap has a tendency to fall out if you are not careful.
