Close-up filter on E-mount?

Hi,

Looking for a macro lens and got suggested Nikon 55mm 3.5 Ai (or perhaps 2.8 AiS) and Canon 60mm.

Any suggestions/experience with other lenses?

I decided to try the inexpensive route to "pseudo-macro" by picking-up one of the +5 diopter close-up filters for 49mm.

I can use it on my 50mm f1.8 and 55-210mm E-mount lenses - so I have AF, metering, & anti-shake on both.

I've only tried it on those two lenses, but it will also fit on my kit zoom and 24mm f1.8

Not a true macro, but good enough for the close-ups of flowers & bugs that I'm looking to do.
