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 500D has two achromatic elements (the 250D lens also)  to correct chromatic aberrations. It does not degrade the high optical performance of EF lenses. Close-up lens 500 has only one element. The 500D is optimized for lenses of 70-300mm.

Note: For use with most EF lenses and PowerShot cameras. PowerShot will require Conversion Lens Adapter which is specific to each camera model

    58mm 500D Close-up Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped for I've tried regular close up lenses and they work up to about 85mm. They have the downside as you have to get with a few inches or to less than an inch. I've also tried extension tubes and they work OK but for macro you lose more that a stop of light. This lens works best on a telephoto zoom. Everything you photograph is at approximately 500mm away which give good working room. I use it on my Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 shooting at f/8 or f/11. Everything is tack sharp. Overall magnification is 0.67x at 55mm to 1.16x at 300mm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Quite, but almost a macro! I have been reviewing and stewing about buying a macro lens for my Nikon D7100. A really good lens demands an investment of several hundred dollars. Recently another photographer suggested I buy the Canon 500D Close-up lens for a fraction of the cost of a macro. So I did. I ordered and received a 58mm Close-up lens about a week ago. I ordered that size as I wanted to use it on my Nikkor 55-300mm zoom, a lens I hardly ever remove from my bag. Upon arrival I removed the UV filter from my zoom lens and attached the Canon 500D. It threads on just like a filter and isn't much deeper. Boy am I happy! I've only used it a few times and there is a learning curve regarding depth of field. But, I am very happy. I'm not sure that I will ever need a macro lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This! First off, this is not a substitute to a macro lens' capability of a 1:1 or 1:2 shot. It will get you a closer, fuller image without sacrificing crispness of the shot. And while it doesn't really give you the ability to fill a frame of a small insect with details the way a macro lens can, it does give you the ability to get a good, very macro-like shot when coupled with a telephoto lens. I always carry it with me even though I also have a Sigma 50mm macro so I don't have to change lenses when a shot only requires less than life-size image. I like it that it's a bit on the heavy side. For the prize, this is a winner. And oh, I actually used it with my macro lens and got me bigger-than-life-size images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the $ if you like macro photograph This is a great addition to any 58mm lens. On my EF 70-300mm lens, it cuts the working distance (how close I can get to the subject and still focus) from 6 feet to less than two feet. That's over 3X magnification for less than $ bucks. The clarity and color are not affected by the lens at all. It looks like a filter, but actually has two magnifying lenses fit into the ring. Fits any lens with a 58mm filter ring, which includes the 55-250 and 18-55 kit lenses that come with many Canon camera models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful The 500D close-up lens provides a great opportunity for macro/close-up photography at a reasonable price. While it appears to be a filter it is really a lens with excellent optical glass offering incredible sharpness. I use it in combination with my Canon 75-300mm IS lens. It has some heft to it but nothing compared to carrying an extra lens around. Works well with auto-focus but should be used on manual focus to get the most out of this lens. Very well built--a must for anyone who enjoys getting really close to their subject.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens has been a blast I have had so much fun with this lens. I'm still pretty new to photography so many of my pictures are not as good as I would like them to be, but some of the best have come with this lens. I use it with both my kit lenses 18-55mm and 55-250mm and get good sharp photos from each. Right now I don't want to shoot any thing but close-ups. Fun-for-the-money, this has been the best deal yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RolandR2 Just made a test, Use it with 70-300 DO and Kit-lens 18-55, both are 58mm simple to attach and focus within a few inches. Great magnification. attached picture taken with 18-55 at 55mm, lens front 3 away from ruler.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only wish I knew how close I was I do a lot of macro photography, particularly insects, and this lens combined with my 55-250mm EFS lens can make a quarter sized object fill the viewfinder. I wish I knew exactly what magnification ratios I'm getting, and what the minimum and maximum focus distance is. I know that this changes depending on the focal length, and that it can be calculated, but perhaps some kind of table of focal length, distance from subject and magnification ratio? Anyhow, the lens is great. I notice no loss of quality in the color, light transmission, sharpness, or bokeh, from the original lens. In fact, the bokeh is improved, probably because the depth of field is so much smaller. And the depth of field does get very small at high focal lengths, so it can be difficult to use if you want really close up shots, but under most circumstances, I find 150mm focal length (with an APS-C sensor more like 225mm) is the maximum if I want to have a comfortable depth of field at f/8. Also, in case your worried, the autofocus on my camera was not affected at all. The one bad thing about the lens is that, while the mount is firm, it is very difficult to find the threads. This can be an enormous hassle in the field. I definitely have a much easier time attaching my polarizing filter to the lens than I do the close-up lens.
