The B+W 58mm Close-Up +2 SC NL 2 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 58mm 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 +2. Diopter strengths of +1, +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.

    58mm Close-Up +2 SC NL 2 Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally sharp images I used this lens yesterday for the first time to take some closeups of the eye of a peacock feather, using a Nikon D5100 DSLR and Nikkor 55-300 lens, at a focal length of 170 mm. The images--with the eye taking up nearly the entire frame--were amazingly sharp. Even when expanded to fill the 21-in screen of my Mac, the image remained sharp, with the exception of some slight lack of clarity around the edges of the screen. Manual focusing was not troublesome, particularly with the feature of my camera that enables the autofocus mechanism to tell you when you're in focus.
