The Heliopan 52mm Close-Up +3 Lens is a convex diopter designed to decrease the minimum focus distance of any lens in order to produce a shorter working distance for close-up photography. Available in varying strengths, close-up lenses also feature 52mm front filter threads for combining two or more filters to fine-tune results.

The front and rear surfaces of the filter both feature a single anti-reflection coating. Each coating helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, they offer protection to the filter substrate while helping to keep the glass clean for longer than uncoated glass.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Convex lens design and +3 dioptric strength lessens the minimum focusing distance of any lens for close-up shooting.
Single coatings on both the front and rear offer protection to the glass and help to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
Dual threading with 52mm front filter threads permits combining with other filters.

    52mm Close-Up +3 Lens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heliopan +3 Close-up Lens a Bargain The Heliopan +3 close-up lens is a quality accessory that is fun to use. It was tested on a Canon 60mm f/2.8 macro lens with a crop-sensor Canon 7D dSLR. The addition of the close-up lens did not prevent the use of the lens guard. When photographing flat objects straight on, best results were attained at f/9. When depth of field was needed, f/11 to f/13 worked well. With such small apertures, bright light is required to keep shutter speeds up when wind is a factor and hand-held shooting can be difficult. When used in the optimal aperture range, image centers were very sharp with only minor degradation towards the edges. Contrast was consistently first rate. Pincushion distortion was only slightly visible at the edges in images that featured prominent straight lines: for subjects like flowers this is not field-relevant. Stopped down as suggested, vignetting was not an issue. Bokeh was surprisingly soft given the small apertures required. Multi-coating ensured excellent glare control. The build quality is fine (although the carrying case is flimsy). This close-up lens has two IQ problems: color-fringing in high contrast areas can be pronounced near the edges (I would give it a 7 on a 10 point scale), and specular highlights get duplicated in a way that is unappealing so it is important to keep them out of compositions.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turns a 35mm into a macro lens Although it is very good, I discovered that I was better off getting the 3 filters ser, because they mount on each other making the magnification even better. But other than that, this filter is great for close ups of anything. I use it with my 35mm and when I open the aperture to 1.8, it focuses beautifully and blurs out the rest of the picture.
