Based on the success of the first Leitz Cine MacroLux +1 Diopter, Ernst Leitz  Wetzlar, part of Leica Camera AG, offers two more close up lenses. The macro lens attachments Cine MacroLux +2 and +0.5 which are based on the same Leica optics, coatings and mechanics as the Cine MacroLux Diopter +1. The new Cine MacroLux attachments can be used individually or combined.  They promise consistent, creative shots.

The +2, +1 and +0.5 Cine MacroLux attachments have the same mount as well as the same optical characteristics. This means that all three are compatible with the Prime, Zoom and Anamorphic lenses with a front diameter of 95 millimeters. They can be screwed together and combined for additional creative effects. In addition, the Leica Cine MacroLux +2 Diopter provides a larger macro effect for tabletop and close-up shots. The much sought after +0.5 Diopter offers additional options, especially in combination with wide angle lenses. 

While these accessory lenses are for the specially designed cine lenses from Leitz Cine Wetzlar, they are also of interest to the Leica M and Leica SL shooters  since these cine lenses can be used with an adapter on these cameras as well.
