The B+W 77mm Close-Up +2 SC NL 2 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 77mm 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.

    77mm Close-Up +2 SC NL 2 Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasant Unexpected Surprise I bought this to use on a Nikon 12-24MM f/4 lens when I use it in an underwater housing to sharpen up the corners. I fully expected it to vignette below 18mm. However, when I put it on the lens and shot a series of pictures at all f-stops and focal lengths of this lens, I never detected any vignetting at all while reviewing the shots on my computer. The pictures were all very sharp and clear. These shots were all done while on the surface and not in the housing and its dome, but I am encouraged by the results thus far. If this does prove to be the case, it will be a most pleasant surprise. I had previously contacted B+W and asked them about the possiblity of it vignetting on the Nikon 12-24. They said it would. I decided to go ahead and try it out. I have other 77MM lenses so I could use it on them if the vignetting proved to be too extreme. So when I got it and tried it out, I was very happy to see no evidence of any vignetting at all. However, this may not be the case on your particular camera/lens combination, so be aware of this possibility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well, as expected I use these for my underwater housing and they make all the difference in the world for sharpness at the edges of my underwater shots.
