Re: What does DX have to do with it?

Looks like you have the 105mm figured out.  You can get close up filters cheaply many places.  Most aren't great quality (some of the branded ones are achromatic doublets and can be quite nice) but a set generally aren't expensive if you just wanted one for testing the close up look.

Here's a cheap set (if you use Amazon prime/had some other little thing you wanted to order).  You don't need them to test the portrait field of view, but they'd let you get to test how focusing on bugs could work.
