Pretty much the same comment I made in your earlier thread https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4634747

Diopter lenses in general don't add much when you use them with the camera at wide angle, because the camera can already get quite close to the subject.

A +1 lens will let you get the lens about 1 meter from the subject, even at full zoom,  A +2 lens will let you get to 1/2 meter, etc.

The NiSi is +3 so your working distance (with the camera set to infinity) is about 1/3 meter

The field of view is very shallow, so it's sometimes easier to put the camera in MF mode and move the camera to get focus.
