See the posts on cheap homemade macro lens, above. I use various magnifiers in front of my Dimage Xi, for different magnifications. Works a treat.:-)
More details in my reply to the above-mentioned post.

Good macro lenses have better corrected chromatic and spherical aberrations. A cheap one-element lens will tend to create soft corners. A good test of a macro lens is to shoot a small flat object with a lot of tiny details (a postal stamp, for example, or a currency bill). You'll immediately see how good your setup is.
