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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Anywhere Macro I have heard about this item from many people but I had never seen one to test. So my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to get my own and give it a try. I can't always carry my 100mm macro around so this is a great way to capture a macro shot when you stumble across a macro opportunity. This unit is about 1 inch thick in it's protective case. So it is something you should always have in your bag. I was able to capture some really nice flower images with this unit attached to my Canon 70-200 IS. I was on vacation and dragging my macro was out of the question. I am very pleased with this item and would recommend you have one in your kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light & inexpensive macro-like option This is a much better choice than any single-element so-called close-up filters out there. The Canon 500D, +2 diopters, with fine optics, can be added to any long focal length lens to give almost macro size images conveniently without carrying the extra weight of macro lenses or without investing in the significant extra expense of macro lenses. I keep it my camera bag all the time (along with extension tubes) so that if I see a potential closeup subject but I am travelling light without my macro lenses, I am still able to capture the opportunity. Two-element construction maintains edge-to-edge sharpness and significantly reduces chromatic aberration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a doll! I was so happy to try this.Very professional when it works with what you use as a tool.Yes it is sharp all over and aligns perfectly with my 77 mm threads.Have been enjoying the excellent working distance and clarity .With this on my telephoto, a lot of close up benefits are with camera support, Glad I,ve got step down rings so I can use with some other lens.The light weight to make my telephoto shots close up capable is the real capper.Came with a nice storage case worthy of my camera bag.Also the bonus over my teleconverters, no loss of light.On a really bright day even a extension on the lens works well too. Excellent buy.Enjoying my new found freedom.I should have bought this ages ago. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as a macro lens This brilliant close-up lens is perfectly designed to be an accessory to Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II lens. I have the occasional desire to shoot macro, but could not justify the cost of a dedicated quality macro lens. This close-up lens converts this exceptional zoom lens into a superb macro lens for a fraction of the cost. Yes, you first have to own the rather expensive zoom lens, and then it is a relatively small investment to convert it to a macro when required, by simply screwing on this close-up lens like a filter. This add on is not, however, a flimsy filter - it is a substantial piece of glass, made up of two achromatic elements, that delivers brilliant performance. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little glass - and for Nikon too This is an amazing little gizmo that I use on my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR... which allows me to photograph bugs, flowers and those abstract little details of the simple things that surround us... it has opened a whole new set of possibilities... It is little heavy, but much lighter than a dedicated macro lens. I definitely don't leave home without it if I'm taking the 70-200 with me. I don't really feel too much loss of light using it, neither other optics aberrations. It is really a good piece of glass. Focus is razon thin, but that's expected, so prepare to use a tripod and go f/11 and above. Off-camera flash helps too. Definitely a good purchase of you own a fast zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing accessory for all photographers I first heard of this Canon 500D lens from a friend who thought it was just a gimmick item to add on to the already ever-growing gimmick items to make you a better photographer. I'm a wedding photographer and I really wanted to buy a macro lens. When I did my research on the Canon 500D lens I found lots of people who have great comments. I bought this to help with ring and detail shots. I'm lucky that my 70-200, 24-70 and 16-35 lenses are all 77mm so I can use this close up lens on all my main lenses. Since purchasing the Canon 500D lens I am having a blast at macro photography and use the Canon 500D lens in so many areas I didn't think it would be useful before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I realize that it might seem silly to say that this lens is both easy and difficult to use, but bear with me! It is challenging to use handheld, but you can get nice results with practice. On a tripod is where it really shines, and it is dead easy to use when immobilized. I put it on my 70-200 f/2.8L; the images are lovely and a big improvement over the zooming and cropping I was forced to do previously. I don't truly need a dedicated macro lens for photographing my scaled down sculptures so this is a great compromise. It is not a real substitute for macro enthusiasts, but a very worthwhile product. Plus it's so easy to carry around that it's ideal for hiking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting alternative to macro lens I purchased this as I don't do a lot of macro, and couldn't justify a dedicated macro lens at this time. I also wanted the convenience of just adding the closeup lens instead of stopping to change lenses in the field for a couple of shots. I am mostly using this on a Canon 100-400L and have also tried it on my 24-104L. It provides good magnification and excellent image quality. It also definitely takes practice in order to get the desired results. My first shots were somewhat disappointing, but the more I worked with it and learned how to use it properly, the happier I became. Use of a tripod is a must. On the downside, it is not as flexible as a macro lens due to the set working distance.
