That's really clever, might work with other types of lens filters too!  I do wonder about increased vignetting at wide angles (something the Raynox already has a problem with), have you tried it out in the field yet?

Just some quick "does it focus ok" testing which was fine. I can get to about 2x without vignetting (with the lens/clip directly on the camera). That's about the same as I get with the clip alone.
