Good bang for your buck

C. O'Connor, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this Sony VCL-M3358 Close-up lens. I wanted to experiment in macro photography without jumping head-on into buying a dedicated macro lens right away. This is a fairly substantial piece of glass at 2.5 ozs, it is multi-coated and comes with a very sturdy plastic storage case. It screws easily onto my Canon 55-250mm IS zoom lens.

Not macro but close.

D. Livingston, Amazon

  • Summary: Good glass and no color distortion. My main reason for getting this lens is for stacking with a teleconverter. Great results when you need a close up of something you can't get close to. Try it you'll like it. This lens will work with any camera that has 58mm filter thread and for cameras with other sizes - get an up or down adapter.

Excellent quality but weak magnification

Sandstone, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: I ordered this lens to use as an attachment for my Olympus E-620 dSLR with 14-42 lens, so that is the specific configuration to which this applies. 1. Quality of lens, image: first rate. No complaints 2. Magnification factor: when I compared closest focus with/without lens, it didn't seem to make much difference. Using crude on-screen measurements, the figure I came up with was 20% magnification increase. Helpful, but not a lot.

Nearly Perfect

J. R. Compton, Amazon
13 February 2008
  • Summary: Once we figured out that the adapter came with the camera and didn't need to have been in this box, it worked great. Just like AAKatz whose dot com's "White Paper" copiously described. It's nearly perfect, although getting it out of its protective plastic "box" is a booger.

  • Summary: I am very pleased with Sony's Close up ring. There was far less distortion than using the cheapie close up lens on the market.

Best Value Of All Achromatic Close-up Lenses!

NEXuser, Amazon
29 November 2007
  • Summary: I have been using the M3358 with a Pentax telezoom (58mm filter thread)with excellent results. This top quality lens is very bit as sharp and well-made as the Canon 500D and Nikon 6T, at almost half the price! It has very nice multi-coating and is made in Japan. Anyone using a lens with 58mm filter thread should consider buying the M3358 instead of paying more for the Canon or Nikon equivalents. The color rendition and distortion control is top notch!

Great close-up filter for the price. Fits on some 58mm Canon lenses, too!

pixieverde, Amazon
25 November 2007
  • Summary: I originally got this lens about a year ago for the Sony Cybershot DSC-H20 (attachable with special adapter). What a disappointment that was. The lens on that camera already has amazing close-up/macro capability and this attachment handicaps, rather than enhances it. What's more, the adapter disables the auto-focus lamp -- which is a big problem on a camera that doesn't have manual focus controls! If you've got the H20, don't bother with this.

Excellent lens for the price

T. Wiersma, Amazon
21 November 2007
  • Summary: I have had this lens for about two months and I love it. It allows me to get really close to subjects. You can even have the subject touching the lens and still be in focus. The lens is of great quality. Amazon was the least expensive site I found for this product. Great shipping and tracking. I highly recommend this product to all DSC-H1 or H2 or H5 owners.
