    Best Close-up Lens: 02 Hama Macro Lens Set

    Best Close-up Lens: 02 Hama Macro Lens Set

    Price: £65 (58mm)  Buy it:
    Available in popular filter thread sizes from 52mm to 67mm, Hama’s kit comprises three lenses at +1, +2 and +4 dioptres magnifications.

    They’re made from high-quality glass, and are double-coated on each side for improved optical performance.

    The lenses work well individually, and as with similar kits you can stack them for magnifications of up to +7 dioptres, although image contrast can suffer a bit.

    The lenses come in a carrying case and you have to screw them together for stowage.

    Our verdict

    Pros: A versatile kit that’s well made and gives good image quality
    Cons: Slight degradation in picture quality when stacking lenses

    Score: 80%
