The B+W 58mm Close-Up +3 SC NL 3 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 +3. Diopter strengths of +1, +2, +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 +3 SC NL 3 Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It performs better than I expected For a single-element closeup lens I'm surprised how satisfied I am with its sharpness. I use it on a Nikon 58mm f/1.8G, which already is very sharp, so maybe that's why the combination performs as well as it does. I can't speak for others, however, for whom macro may be even more critical than what I need. Besides the convenience of simply adding a filter to my 50mm lens, its added benefit is that, compared to a dedicated macro lens, no exposure compensation is required when close focusing. Though I find it a complete nuisance that my Nikon 58mm lens cap will not fit on this due to the glass protruding beyond its screw-on mounting ring, I give it 5 stars for its performance. A B+W/Schneider #300 series 60mm lens cap will fit, though very tightly.
