It's almost always in my bag

A wonderful way to turn your 70-200 into a macro lens. I always include this in my bag when carrying my 70-200mm. It takes up very little space and you never know when the opportunity might arise to use it. It's not as good optically as the EF 180 or EF 100 macros I have but then again its a lot less expensive and easier to carry. If you haven't discovered the fun of macro photography - I'm addicted - you owe it to yourself to get one and discover a whole new world and dimension to your photo...

i would rather invest in a macro lens

i thought it would be a good idea to have it in my bag in case of a not planned macro opportunity. I made a couple of test shots with nikon 28-300mm on d800 - it was ok. and then i took the same shots win my nikon 105mm macro lens - wow, the difference was obvious. I returned the filter right away.

Nice flexibility

By

from Falls Church  -  Semi-Professional

Macro/Micro lenses are better. Period. Sharper, flat field of curvature, optimized for use at short distances. Better pictures for close detail. That said, I'm keeping this because it fits into my 77mm filter stack and can make the 70-200mm f/2.8 a passable close up lens. It is more compact to carry around than tubes. If I don't have the room for the 70-180mm micro I'm packing this. Images are "good enough" for many uses.

Ok for the price

By

from Monroe New York  -  Professional

If you want to take amazing macro shoots buy a macro lens. For the amount of time I need it, it doesn't make sense to spend much money on a lens so this was a great alternative .

Good

By

from Louisiana  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

To use this filter one must take the time . This is not a bad filter I oun it . you have to ajust you lens focus slowly and have a way to lock your zoom in place so it dose not drift out . It dose what it says it will do . I love mine and would not trade it off for nothing . I use it on my 70-300mm canon lens . I use a bellows to ajust my lens in and out between the camra and the lens . macro is macro , It not like taking photos of people . one has to have time .

Good Value

By

from Grangeville, Idaho  -  Semi-Professional

I have the Canon 400mm/f5.6L and I like it, because the image quality is quite good. What I never liked about it is the close-up focusing distance, well there is no such thing. The closest it can focus on is about 11'. So I bought the 500D close-up lens. I know it is made for lenses from 70mm-300mm, but it works just fine for the 400mm. Now I can focus as close as about 22" and the image quality is good. It also does work well with wide-angle lenses. So, the only thing I can say about this filter is, that I like it (a lot).

Interesting lens, not super easy to use

By

from Kalkaska, MI  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Bought the 500D after watching Bryan Peterson do some of his magic with it on a youtube video. Struggled to get decent results with it. I've now got a Tokina macro that I love. Its a great value and far easier to get good results.

Awesome addition. Many uses.

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

While bulky compared to standard filters, this is great as a travel macro lens substitute. You want some macro (close up) capability while traveling but don't want to pack another lens? This is the way to go. Don't have to remove your lens at switch to macro. Image is excellent.

Great lens! Would buy it again.

By

from Pensacola, FL  -  Retired Photographer

Great for use with focusing rail to produce high magnification,and to also increase depth by use of focus stacking.
