Unlike the OP pics, you're using the 30-110 - which would also be preferable to use with Nikon's N1-CL1 alternative. The Nikon link I gave before shows pics of its use with both kit zooms, which clarifies the magnification offered in each case.

I wonder how the image quality of the Nikon close-up lens compares to the Marumi achromat.
The Nikon lens is only one element, while the Marumi is a lens system, which corrects for colour fringing.

Does it say that somewhere? Perhaps I was assuming it would be a 40.5mm version of the 62mm Nikon 5T which I have used on the 30-110 with step-ups - and which is definitely a diopter, and a good one.

OP might note people are using the 30-110 for working distance as well as magnification.
