The 62mm Close-Up Kit from Hoya permits your lens to focus closer than normal. Imagine that you could put a magnifying glass in front of your camera's lens. Close-up lenses work in this fashion and are the simplest and least expensive method of close-up photography. They are available in different "powers" (diopters). A +1 close-up lens will allow you to focus your lens somewhat closer than it already does. A +2 close-up lens will allow you to focus closer than the +1. A +4 lens will allow you to focus even closer than a +2. A +1 combined with a +2 will equal a +3, while a +2 combined with a +4 will equal a +6, and so on.

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. They are multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. When using these filters, either together or separately, your depth of field becomes quite shallow. Whenever possible, use of a small aperture will produce better results. In addition, as a result of the shallow depth of field produced by these filters, use of a tripod is strongly recommended to avoid "shake" and "blur" when photographing up close.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting.

            I was using this product to try and get closer using my 200mm micro Nikkor and extension tubes. It is counterintuitive to put a 40$ filter on a 1600$ lens but I thought I would try. There was a loss of sharpness and the images taken with these filters also appeared hazy.

            That being said, these filters might work well with other lenses, I don't know. they did not work for what I intended to use them for. As usual, BH was very easy to deal with in the return process.

              Comments about Hoya 62mm Close-Up Kit (Multi-Coated):

              I use this with a Nikon D 7100 with the 105 and 60MM micro lenses. I do product photography sometimes with small objects. These Diapter lenses let me get excellent detail of small objects. like coins and small flowers. The shots are on a tripod with a remote trigger. You can stack the lenses for more magnification. This a low cost way to get great shots of small objects. A problem I have is that the object may be bigger than the frame area of these lenses. So the multiple lenses help to get the object in frame. In Photoshop for high detail I use unsharp mask and may do sharpen more to get good detail. I wipe the lens threads every time I put these lenses on and align them so they don't get cross threaded. Most of the time autofocus works but some times I have to use auto focus.

                        These are a great set of close-up lenses. If you are looking to do macro-style photography, these are not quite powerful enough. You will want a lens in the x10 range.

                          First B&H is the easiest place to shop for professional equipment. I trust them and rely on other's reviews. Therefore I want to be clear an honest. If you are doing professional photography buy a macro lens. However if you are like me, just a hobby, don't bother buy the close-up kit. I have used Hoya products for years, I understand you can get distortion with these close-up kits and should not buy just any brand. Buy a brand you trust. As for the close-up kit, spend time with them. You have to use manual focus (actually no auto mode or P mode). They do a great job at closing the focal distance on your lens, however your subject matter has to be appropriate. I can see people not liking these if they don't understand the basic concepts of DoF and focal lengths. If you do, you will love the results.

                            I decided to put these to the test. I had a bottle sitting on the kitchen counter and placed my camera on the counter as well. I kept edging closer to the bottle until my camera would no longer focus and take the shot. I put a mark on the counter to show the closest I could get it to the bottle and still take a picture. Then I did this with the 2+, 4+, and the two together to make 6+. It definitely did what it said. Each time I could get my camera closer to the object and take a clear picture at a greater magnification. For the price you can't beat it.

                              I do nature photography.
                              Macro is one of my main passions. I was considered purchasing a macro lens, and a friend of mine suggested I try these filters, since he knew my money is tight.
                              These filters are worth every penny (and more)! I couldn't be happier. They are well-built, securely attach to my Sony 18-250 lens, and perform wonderfully!
                              I'm extremely satisfied!
                              The only down side was when I was using the filters to capture some dew drops and a coyote ran past. It took a long time for me to get the filter unscrewed from the lens to photograph the coyote.
