Questions? Ask our experts:

The Hoya 62mm 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 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 Multicoated Close-up Lens Set:

    I use these with an 85mm and 50mm on a full frame to get a little closer for product shots, mostly just the +1 or the +2. I've tried some "macro" shots with all of them stacked, however it doesn't really get you a true macro. These add some chromatic aberration that adds up as it stacks and I've found that witha ll of them stacked, you don't get a very sharp image. The limited aperture range of my lenses also limits how much of your subject you can get in focus. If you just need something to get you an extra foot closer to your subject, these will be fine, but if you mostly do product photography or something similar, get a real macro lens.

            Comments about Hoya 62mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set:

            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.
