I have used a Canon 77mm 500D dual element diopter to shoot wide angle close ups like you are mentioning. It works well on the 12-24mm DX lens as well as the 17-55mm DX and the 24-70mm FX lens.

How much does the 500D increase magnification with these lenses?

I mean, the Nikkor 20/3.5 focuses to MFD 30cm with 1:10 magnification by default (with a little surgery to 20cm, around 1:6, about what the Voigtlander 20/3.5 pancake can by default). The K-1 makes it focus just in front of the lens, at around 1:3.
