Macro Series

Raeding glasses for your lenses

Would you like to explore fantastic worlds in miniature? Close-up lenses open up new motifs in an inexpensive way. Like reading glasses, close-up lenses move the focus range into the close-up zone.

 The effect increases with the diopter number and the focal length of the lens. For shorter focal lengths in digital photography stronger close-up lenses are therefore recommended. The image scale describes the effect. A scale of 1 : 3 renders an object at a third of its original size on the film/sensor. Close-up and macro lenses are simple aids which are suitable in particular for three-dimensional objects (flowers) and pictorial photography, less for technical reproduction purposes. Sufficient stopping down increases the sharpness and the depth of field. 

Macro lens


With extremely high +10 diopter power this close-up lens goes beyond the normal scope. Its high refraction is ideal for the short focal length of digital photography. Even at a focal length of just 50 mm you enter the macro range, with an image scale of approx. 1: 2.

To increase (depth of) focus, stopping down by three f-stops is recommended. If graduated sharpness is part of the image concept, open apertures can also be used. 

Key applications


  • Especially useful for simple close-ups
