The B+W 62mm Close-Up +3 SC NL 3 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 62mm 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice accessory have not had a lot of chances to use this filter yet -- played with it a little and it looks like it will be something I'll enjoy using when macro shots present themselves. Definitely a good quality filter, arrived ... with a case to keep it in. So far I'm very pleased with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharply defined uses ... With the filter my lens (18-250mm) minimum focus distance decreased from about 14 to about 12, measured from the back of the camera to the target object. Doesn't sound like much, but makes a significant difference in the image size. Not as much as expected, but satisfactory for me. But I'm just experimenting, not trying to capture huge closeups of bugs ...One thing I didnt realize is that with the filter on, the distance focus is severely limited. With the filter on, I can't focus beyond a meter or so away. So if you're catching butterfly closeups and that alien spaceship flies overhead ... you're not going to get it.Another caveat - the depth of field across the image is severely affected. Focus is not sharp across the entire frame with this filter. That may be good or bad depending on what you're doing. That may also be largely due to the fact that I'm taking pics with a 250mm lens at a distance of a foot or so :) DOF is so shallow at this magnification that a tripod becomes almost mandatory.For me, this is a fun toy while I save up for a dedicated macro lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product with minimal distortion. An inexpensive and convenient way to increase the magnification of the macro on my Panasonic Lumix dmc-fz1000. Not only that, but I can now focus from further away which minimizes my own shadow getting in the way.
