I remember reading on this forum (possibly about 10 or 12 months ago) that one poster had excellent results with the Opteka close-up lens. The shots that he posted were very impressive. According to their Amazon UK listing, the Opteka has a 4-element construction.

There is an Opteka 10x lens in various diameters, though the glasses seem much smaller than the threads. I asked Opteka about lens diameters for the various thread sizes but they would not answer my question.

Also I asked them for the diopter strength or focal length of the 10x lens, various mails and the only answer: "The focal length will depend on what lens you have this screwed on to."

I'm going to avoid Opteka from now on ...
