What about this one?

Despite of its frame thickness and its price, it does not mention "achromat" on advertisement or the displayed case front.  So I am not sure whether or not this is a two-element one and for that kind of price I'd stay away short of being given reliable information.  Anybody else in the know?

That one is pretty renowned and you'll not likely do anything wrong picking it.  +3 will bring you in the 25cm–33cm range.  That's what my Sony VCL-M3358 (58mm thread) and VCL-M3367 (67mm thread) have too and I find that to work well with the FZ200.  The FZ1000 should not be too different in that regard.

The VCL-M3367 is pretty rare and expensive .  If you find the M3358 (sometimes people sell it for a reasonable price) it might be worth a try too: it's a pretty good one as well.

For strong ones, the Raynox have quite a solid reputation.  But handling and depth of field get really finicky at high strengths.
