The B+W 52mm Close-Up +1 SC NL 1 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 52mm front filter threads. A close-up lens is a magnifier that optically decreases the focal length of a camera lens placed behind it. This effect lessens the minimum focus distance between the camera lens and a subject. Magnification can then be obtained by decreasing the distance between the subject and the combined camera lens and close-up lens.

The magnifying power of a 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 the macro effect. This close-up lens has a diopter strength of +1. Diopter strengths of +2, +3, +4, or +5 are also available where this close-up lens type's effect becomes progressively stronger with each diopter strength number increase.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface of this lens includes one layer of anti-reflection coating. B+W close-up lenses are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity. This close-up lens features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    52mm Close-Up +1 SC NL 1 Lens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A convenient way to get a little closer I bought this in order to take wrist shots of watches for a web site, without buying an expensive dedicated macro lens. It allows focusing at about half the minimum distance of a typical kit zoom. It's convenient, easy to carry, and does what I bought it to do. Be aware, though, that the optical quality it provides is only OK, fine for smallish web images, but probably NOT acceptable for large prints or serious photography of flowers, insects or other small subjects. For that you'll need a more serious, and more expensive lens.
