    Except that with the Opteka, because of it's 4 element construction, field curvature isn't a problem until the focal length exceeds around 70mm in my experience.

    I have a set of closeup attachments and get on fine with them. I sometimes use the 4X with my dedicated 90mm macro and it works just fine. A cheap way of getting very closeup

    I've used these excellent close-up attachments before on my Olympus cameras with stunning results so I thought it now time to try one on my 7DII. Fortunately I had one already that fitted a borrowed 18-55mm STM lens so I took a few shots of my old Weston Master light meter using an Olympus FL50R flash with a bounce diffuser:
