Re: Could someone suggest a 46mm thread option....

Raynox dcr-150/250 have a native 43mm thread and an adapter that clips on 52-67mm lenses. So at 46mm, you'd either need a 46-43mm step down or a 46-52mm step up (or 46 to anything in the 52-67mm range).

You could also find a lot of quality achromatic macro filters in the 52 or 58mm size. You don't want a cheap set like the Hoyas you mentioned. They don't have an achromatic lens element so you get lots of abberation and soft images unless you have really controlled lighting. It's just not worth it when there are quality options for a little bit more.

Marumi 330 or Canon 250D are good options, too, but Raynox is an excellent bang for the buck.
