Key Features
  • Creates Macro Effect
  • Decreases Minimum Focus Distance
  • +2 Diopter Strength
  • Single Coated
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.

B+W 65-076085 Overview

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.

I truly trust B+W

B+W is one of the more expensive brands of filters, but I do like the brass housing and schott glass. I find very little, if any, degrading of the image. The nearest focus distance for the 24-105mm lens is cut about 30%.

Works as advertised.

High quality glass...would recommend it.

Inexpensive Macro

A simple inexpensive alternative for the occasional macro shot. Very thin DOF. Typical B+W outstanding construction.

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.

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.

love it

quality close-up filter; decreases minimum focus distance

Works well with some lenses

This works exceptionally well on my 24-105mm but the image quality degrades severely on my 100-400mm. I would guess it has to do with the type of optics inside the respective lenses. Still a great investment, though.

question

Do you have a lens cap that will fit over this close-up lens so I can leave it on the lens?Thank You,Mark
Asked by: Anonymous
The Schneider 80mm Push-On Lens Cap, B&H # SCLC80, should be the best fit for your inquiry, but the three options listed on the link below should be of adaquate size for your needs. bhpho.to/M1HaFUI will state that as they are slip-on lens caps, I would also recommend the use of a cap keeper like the Sensei Cap Keeper Lens Cap Holder, B&H # SECKL, with the lens cap of your choice.

question

what effect will this type of filter on an canon 10-22mm with an Canon Extension Tube EF 12 II on the body? which is the best +diopter to get if the effects will be compatible with these lenses?Kindest Regards, Don Mucheck

I can't add a link here, but if you go to the cambridgeincolor dotcom site and search for macro extension tubes & closeup lenses , you'll get a great rundown of the pros/cons of tubes and closeup lenses, as well as calculators for each to determine effective minimum focus distance (MFD) and magnification factor.

question

Does this diopter have dual threads so that other dipoters can be added to further decrease focus distance?
