Close-Up Lens Canon 250D, 58 mm - Any Hi-Quality Alternative?

Hi, i tried to get the close-up lens Canon 250D, 58 mm, and i need it on Sept. 2nd. It seems unavaible everywhere incl. that recommended Malaysian store (they e-mailed me they need more time).

Is there any hi-quality alternative to this 250D, 58 mm, lens that is easily available in Germany? In the past, I had cheap close-up lenses creating very faulty images; on the other hand i have the 250D in 52 -mm-width and i like it a lot.

Which close-up lens should i get?

It is meant for the Canon G1 X and i understand that i do need a special filter adapter as well. Or would you recommend another "calibre" of close-up lens altogether? I'm after the usual flowers, food details, coins and such. Actually if the subject fills 33 percent of the screen it's enough, i'll zoom in further by cropping.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

Canon PowerShot G1 X
