Customer Reviews

Seem to be of pretty good quality ..
Michael Novack
The focus is very touchy and I noticed that even though the image appears blurry through the view finder, it sometimes comes out sharp once you take the picture.
Rebecca
I like these, I get a good focused macro when using the lens filters.

I have extensive experience with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens for Canon SLR Cameras for Macro photography, and highly recommend it to anyone who has over $500 to spare. Since most macro lenses are out of the reach of most people on budgets, however, this filter set is a great alternative.

BEFORE I BEGIN...
Amazon also sells Digital Concepts +1 +2 +4 +10 Close-Up Macro Filter Set with Pouch (58mm), which I closely looked at as well before pulling the trigger on this. I only got the Zeikos ones because of the shipping arrangement (this was eligible for Prime, the other wasn't). I don't know how different these two sets are, and I can't recommend one over the other since I only used this set. They're both in the same relative price range, however, so some of my review could theoretically apply to both.

PURPOSE
To start off with, it's really important you understand just what these filters are for. These will NOT magnify the image and turn an ordinary lens into a telephoto one. Instead, these will change the minimum distance from which you can focus with your current lens. In other words, you will be able to physically put your lens closer to the object in question, and achieve a macro-like effect. Which means this is great for stationary objects, but if you want to photograph bugs, you have to get very close in order to fill the frame, so a 100mm macro lens might be a safer bet since it'd allow you to achieve close focus from a safe distance.

I ended up with these when trying to purchase a different filter set that was within about $11, $12. Without any photo examples at the time I was looking at the product page, I was unsure what to expect.

First off, I doubt the filters are multi coated (they reflect white light when looked at. Green would be multi-coated.) But a good multi-coated filter would probably cost more.
The black paint looks like it will flake off eventually.

Those shortcomings aside I found the quality to be surprisingly sharp. I plan to post a few test photos to show off what these filters are capable of. I can get sharp enough to see the wing scale texture on butterflies and the pollen on flowers. CA distortion and fringing is to be expected. At +10 the fuzziness was really bad with the lens F stop at 1.8 to about 4. Setting it to F8 or slightly higher appears to greatly sharpen and improve the overall effect of the filters, especially the +4 and +10. I have not yet tried to layer the filters to increase magnification, but I'd expect the quality to drop when adding more glass in front of the lens.

I have at times combined one of these filters with an extension tube and found the effect to be pretty good, though it does narrow the depth of field and make getting a perfectly focused image a bit more challenging.

Are these better than extension tubes or a macro lens? Most likely not, but in a pinch or a limited budget, these may do pretty well.

These magnification add-on lenses do what they are supposed to do: shorten the working distance to permit macro-photography very inexpensively. However, my complaint with the product is that it is advertised as multi-coated, and I see no evidence of any anti-reflection coating on these lenses whatsoever. Looking at the reflection of a light source, there is no coloring or apparent attenuation of the reflection, on either surface, that I can detect. This appears to be a false claim; however, the price is totally in-line with non-coated optics. True multi-coated optics will cost substantially more (at least 3 to 5 times more) so you get what you pay for. I am only complaining that the description misrepresents the product, though the product provides good value at the price.

These close up lenses provide any photographer of moderate to advanced skill an oppurtunity to explore their macro potential and interest without purchasing an expensive macro lens. Don't get me wrong, there is no substitute for a good macro lens. But like many poeple, I simply cannot afford that right now.

The catch to these close up lenses is practice. Don't expect to just walk out the day you get them and take extremely sharp and detailed photographs, you may, but it requires practice and technique to get really sharp and detailed photographs.

Tips: Stay parallel with your subject, creating flat planes that photograph at the same "depth" in the photo, you will have increased areas of in focus subject.Whenever you photograph a subject from above or below and not even or parallel with your subject, areas behind and in front of your focal point will blurr due to the shallow Depth of Field that is a quark of magnification lenses. Use this technique if you are a begginner close up photographer. After some practice, you will have the understanding you need to "play" more and experiment.

Also use your narrowest aperture settings to enlarge your depth of field. At least at first, until you are comfortable controlling your Depth of Field within your viewfinder.

I highly reccommend giving these a try. I really enjoy the new possibiities opened to me by purchasing these lenses. Keep an open mind, and practice!
