The B+W 52mm Macro Close-up +10 Lens (NL10) is a close-up diopter lens which allows you to decrease the minimum focus distance on any lens, in turn increasing the effective maximum reproduction ratio of your lens. This lens' dioptric power is enough to simulate true macro-like performance (up to 1:2 or 1:1.5). It is recommended to use middle apertures, such as f/8 or f/11, in order to achieve corner-to-corner sharpness. This filter also does not feature front threads and is not meant to be used in combination with other filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter has a single anti-reflective coating, which helps to improve light transmission to over 98% while preventing internal reflections and ghosting. Additionally, it features a brass filter ring for increased durability as well as jamming prevention.

This filter decreases the minimum focus distance of any lens, providing macro-like results.
Achieve true macro-like reproductions ratios up to 1:2 or 1:1.5.
Single anti-reflective coating helps increase light transmission to over 98% while reducing reflections, flare, and ghosting.

    52mm Macro Close-up +10 Lens (NL10) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme closeup This filter does what it promises and it does not alter really the quality of the pic as far as I can tell. I do not own a macro lens so I don't know how different it is to use them, but I can tell you that I don't feel the need to own a macro lens with this filter at hand :) On the downside it is really hard to use AF...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I have been wanting a Macro Lens for a long time, but I haven't purchased one due to the fact that its hard to find one under $500. I bought this filter instead of an actual macro lens, and after playing with it for a while I feel that I don't need an actual macro lens. This filter just screws one the front of your lens and allows you to focus very, very close to the subject. This filter is very powerful, when I put it on my telephoto lens I can get something the size of an ant to take up nearly the whole frame. I haven't noticed any significant loss if image quality, but when using it on a telephoto lens you need to make sure to shoot in aperture priority mode, and have the camera set to f-11 or higher, or the images come out blurry (at least on my camera). The only drawback on this filter is that the autofoucs on your camera (or at least my camera) wont work with the filter attached. to focus this a picture what I have found works best is if you set the camera to manual focus, It doesn't seem to matter where the cameras focus ring is set, then slowly move the camera closer and closer to the subject until it comes into focus, after a little practice you get a feel for how close you need to be. The only other drawback is that this filter is not great in low light without a tripod, or stand alone flash, but if I use a flash, or tripod low light pictures have no real loss in quality. I have gotten some very good pictures with this lens, and if you don't want to spend the money on a real macro lens, then I highly suggest purchasing this filter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too close for comfort I'm sure the B&W 52mm close-up +10 lens is a good product. Unfortunately, the product did not fit my needs. My purpose of purchasing this lens was to photograph jewelry, but it as too powerful. I had to get too close to the piece of jewelry which in turn filled the frame with no depth of field at all. The is a great product for microscopic photography, by of no use to me. I must say that B&H was very kind and fair to let me send back the lens and be reimbursed. That is why I will always use B&H for my photographic needs

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fabulous! The quality of B&W has always been superb. This is perfect if you do not have a macro lens in your bag or want to occasionally take some macro shots. The price is right and an excellent buy.
