The B+W 37mm Close-Up +5 SC NL 5 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 37mm 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 +5. Diopter strengths of +1, +2, +3, or +4 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.

The B+W Close-Up +5 SC NL 5 Lens possesses a front surface with a high degree of curvature and no front filter threads. To combine this B+W 37 Close-Up +5 SC NL 5 Lens with other close-up lenses or filters, it must screwed onto the very top of any combination of stacked close-up lenses or filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good glass I use close-up glass with the Lensbaby Composer. This is in addition to the +4 and +10 macro kit from Lensbaby. B+W makes great filters. I will be buying +1 to +3 soon. Screws on easy and stays on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong magnification in a small size I purchased this close-up lens for use with an Olympus 45 micro 4/3 lens. The results are excellent..sharp and snappy. The close-up lens makes it possible to get extreme detail.
