Canon Close-up lenses are for quick and easy close-up photography. The close-up lens is screwed on to the front of a lens like a filter. Close-up lenses 250D and 500D have two achromatic elements to correct chromatic aberrations. They do not degrade the high optical performance of EF lenses. Close-up lens 500 has only one element, making it more affordable.

The 250D is suited for lenses with a focal length anywhere from 30 to 135mm. The 500D and 500 are geared for lenses with a focal length anywhere from 70 to 300mm.

    58mm 250D Close-up Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the camera bag I bought this to use with the stock 18-55mm EF-S Lens that came with my Canon Digital rebel XTi for close up photography. It has exceeded my expectations. I have tested it on bugs, flowers, coins, and more. It takes very clear, crisp, and sharp photos especially when used with a tripod and remote shutter release. It isnt a high end macro lens, but for a cheap alternative it certainly suits my interests and needs for now. Highly recommended. ...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay Difficult to screw onto my lens! It's virtually impossible to get lined up to screw it on. Then I'm afraid to take it off because I might not be able to get it back on fast enough. I thought I might use it for close-ups instead of my clunky macro for some nature photography, but you get yourself standing in awkward positions, so it's tricky holding it steady at the point where it's in focus. It takes some getting used to. Other than that, it's okay. If you don't want the hassle just fork out the dough and get a macro, they're a lot easier to work with. It is still good for the price and I don't regret buying it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product for macrophotography I purchased the Canon 250D close-up lens in order to convert my Pentax DA* 55mm primary lens into a macro lens. The product itself is beautifully made and a joy to handle. It has a double lens construction that is claimed to reduce chromatic aberration (CR), and so it is considerably more expensive than the commonly available single-lens variety. I also wanted to test whether or not it could actually resolve finer details than simply enlarging and cropping a picture taken without the close-up lens. In order to answer both questions, I mounted my Pentax K-5 camera on a tripod and photographed my test chart on the wall at the minimum possible focal distance, both with and without the close-up lens attached. I used a wireless flash mounted to one side, and set the aperature to f/8. First, with the close-up lens attached, the minimum focal distance from the test pattern to the base of the camera decreased from about 15 to 8. Second, the image size increased by a factor of 2.5, exactly as expected. Third, and most importantly, the ultimate resolving power increased by at least a factor of 2, as measured by zooming the test pattern by 400% on the computer screen. This corresponds to a resolving power of 30 microns or better. However, a separate test showed that the depth-of-field is correspondingly decreased by the same factor of 2.5, for any given f-stop setting. Finally there was no observable CA, even at this extreme magnification, with or without the close-up lens. In conclusion, the Canon 250D close-up lens met all my expectations, and proved to be an effective way of increasing the resolving power of my Pentax-DA* 55mm primary lens without loss of image quality, other than the expected loss of depth-of-field for a given f-stop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure - weird ghosting out of focus I bought this lens to complement the Canon 500D lens that I've been using for over 20 years on 100-300 mm lenses. While the 500D produces no-surprise close-up and macro images, I wanted to have the capability of effective close-up with shorter lenses where I can come closer to the subject and use longer exposure times than with the long telephotos. My fist use of the 250D produced on some images taken against the light some unnaturally-looking ghosting images around the not quite sharp edges rather than smoothly fading out blur of bokeh. I'm not sure yet about that phenomenon need to take more pictures to understand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun toy, reasonable price Compared to the price of a decent lens, you can experiment and own this lens for pocket change, and it offers you the opportunity to do things (really close) that you simply could not otherwise do. It's simple - just screw it on - and you're off. But it requires a lot more effort and patience and practice than just popping another auto-focus zoom lens onto the front of your camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Worthy Investment I've been using this as an add-on to my EF100mm. Boosts the maximum ration from 1:1 to 1:1.4 which is perfect for my needs. Screws on the end of the MT-24EX dual flash as well. This is a really ideal setup. I'm very happy with this purchase. Great enhancement for under ninety bucks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for what it is This is great for the budget conscious photographer that wants a good macro lens but cannot afford an actual macro lens. It's also easy to carry around with you and screw on the end of your lens when you want that close up without actually changing lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Filter These filters produce nice, crisp images. I stack 2 for extreme close-ups and get no distortion. The construction is also impressive. Highly recommended.
