    Default Explain the difference b/w telephoto and close up lens?

    What's the difference between a telephoto and a close up lens? Seems like both achieves a higher magnification? (Based on screen shots)

    let me try..... they "magnify" using different ways. close-up lens reduce the focussing distance while a teleconverter increases the focal length.

    let me give it a go..

    with a teleconverter you can spy on your cute neighbour changing and see her undies.

    with a closeup u can spy on a bee hovering over a flower and see its wing detail.
