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

The Hoya 67mm 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've been experimenting with macro photography lately and I didn't want to buy an expensive lens before I had some idea what I was doing so I tried some close up filters. To give the filters a fair shot, I decided to buy a good one and I got a Canon 500D. I put it on my lens and all the pictures were unusable (tons of haloing, a mist effect, and objects out of focus except at the very center of the lens) so I quit using these filters for a while. Then I put the Canon filter on a different lens and it made good pictures a lot of the time. Since the Canon filter didn't fit the lens I wanted to use and these filters were very inexpensive I decided to take a risk and bought them. Here is the result. I don't know why close up filters work sometimes and not others, but these work just as good as the much more expensive Canon filter. About 30% of the time they don't seem to degrade the picture at all. The rest of the time they have the same problems listed above to varying degrees. The higher the diopter, the worse the problem gets, but I have perfect pictures with the highest diopter. You can stack them like they say, but that makes your odds worse and if you stack the all three of them there no hope. I use these on a Canon 70-300 L and generally I only take the 2 diopter with me. That reduces my minimum focus distance from about 4 ft t about 10 inches and gives me a 50/50 chance of getting a good picture. So, I guess you weigh the risks and determine if these are the right choice for you. I use them quite a bit and I haven't gotten a macro lens so they must be doing something right. Something else to consider is these are much easier to carry and much easier to change off than a dedicated lens.

          If you are thinking about trying macro this is a good starting point, you will need to try a bit to understand what the best conditions are to use these lenses but once you get it they are really good. Remember it is about patience and you will get something really good from them, you will get an awesome picture for the price.

              I wanted good, but not over-the-top close up lenses. I'm not a pro, so these are perfect for me. They are simple, stackable, and durable. They are easy-on, easy-off, fit in my bag just fine, and are there for all the bug-on-a-flower shots I like to take. They are exactly what I wanted.

                These are fine filters like the other reviews have said. One suggestion: buy a bigger filter than you actually need and use step-up adapter rings. They are inexpensive and someday you may have a new lens bigger than you have now.

                        You need to bump up the Av a lot!!! Depth of field is very shallow as other review state. However, for what they are they work very well and are good quality.

                        This set of lenses is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing a macro lens. The field of view is limited but it allows you to obtain decent close-up shots of small objects. Image quality is good when I used them with a Canon 70-300mm L lens. The images were sharp and there was little loss of light. The other advantage to this set of lenses is that they screw onto a lens the same as you would attach a filter, which makes it easy to carry them and use them without switching lenses.

                          The close-up filters are great inexpensive way to focus in on close-up detailed product shots in my studio or on location. I wasn't really prepared to purchase a macro lense, so this was an affordable option for right now. And they came with a very nice protective case! I'm always pleased with the products and prices I get from B&H. Thank you!

                                      1. Fit well on my Canon 5d Mark III. Easy on and easy off.
                                      2. Was able to focus closer to the flowers that I was taking pictures of.

                                          I purchased this close-up kit to complement an excellent fixed lens camera. At all combinations, including stacking, the image is tack sharp in the center, but distortion creeps in at the edges with a slight-to-noticeable purple fringe.

                                            I have used it with my digital camera, with good results. Once I got use to setting it up, it's been easy.

                                                I use to get some closups of backyard animals including insects and birds.

                                                Does the job and is inexpensive.

                                                Somewhat useful for macro photography, but don't expect it to be as sharp as a dedicated macro lens. Overall a cheap, decent way to start taking macros.

                                                  These close-up lenses are excellent with sturdy construction and the multi-coating essentially eliminates ghosting and aberrations.The units screw on freely unlike other cheaper units. Without a doubt - the best value in a close-up set. Highly recommended - the results are terrific.

                                                      Just screw it on your lens, and you can focus much closer than normally, you can combine the close-up filters to get even closer, but then you have more glass in front of your lens. Much cheaper than dedicated macro lens, but even if I own one, it is still nice to have these filters. I use them on wideangle lens as well and also with my medium format gear for which there is no dedicated macro lens.
