The B+W 72mm Close-Up +5 SC NL 5 Lens offers the ability to achieve macro-like results with camera lenses that have 72mm 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 72 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.

    72mm Close-Up +5 SC NL 5 Lens is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended Quickly found out that it is not a macro substitute. It did make the lens focus close, it did make things big, it also made very soft and foggy pictures that were, in my modest opinion, not worth keeping ... not a one. I used it on a Canon 200mm f2.8 L ii and 24-105 f4 IS L. Maybe the +2 or +3 work better, but I'm not going to try.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better Before buying this I bought a 1+,2+,4+ set. It did not come close to what I was hoping for. I returned them and bought the 5+. I am having a lot more fun with this one. It is not a macro lens, but much less expensive. The results are good. I am pleased with the level of detail. There is distortion at the edges, but it is not a distraction. I have a Nikkor 18 to 200 lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First shots look pretty good I am hoping this lets me do micro and macro photography without buying another lens. So far it seems to be working.
