The Hoya 72mm 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.

            Comments about Hoya 72mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set:

            I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I actually was shopping around for a macro lens for my SONY camera when I came across this product. I started reading reviews on macro filter lenses and watching youtube videos on how to use them and what types of lenses are best to combine them with. These filters worked great with what I want to do for macro photography. Really great performer when combined with a 50mm or 85mm prime lens. The focus is really sharp in the center and produces really shallow depth of field with great bokeh. I did notice when you start stacking the lenses you have to play with your distance a bit more to get the image to focus well. I stuck with the 4x magnification for what I was doing.

            Nice alternative to a Macro Lens

            By Ron

            from San Antonio TX

            Comments about Hoya 72mm Multicoated Close-up Lens Set:

            I like to shoot macro from time to time but not enough to purchase a true macro lens. Did a little research on close-up kits and decided to make the purchase of Hoya's set of three. There are a lot of choices but for the price I had to try Hoya's. They work beautifully. Once you know how to use them with your lens you can fantastic results. I've used them separately and stacked (always use they highest power closest to the lens first) and results are great. DOF gets pretty shallow so use smallest aperture possible. Focusing is a trick but experimenting is a must. I find it best to set your lens focus first then move the camera back and forth for critical focus (a tripod and a macro focusing rail is best for focus sharpeness). I highly recommend this item if you are on a budget but, nothing will beat a good macro lens...

                I've used these close up lenses in the past and had great results. I get the detail I need without having to carry separate heavy lenses.

                This was exactly what I expected. The filters are *not* achromatic, but are not advertised (or priced) as such.

                    These filters work as expected, do a search for "diopters" or "close up filters" and this is just such a product.

                        I bought these filters because my Z7 standard Ziess lens has very limited close up capacity. Just the 1X gives me much more latitude.

                        Images are very crisp.

                        Get a bit of vignetting with the X4
