Close-up lenses are listed as +1 +2 +4 +10 etc. I have hunted for the "factor' of the
Sony VCL-M3367 67mm Close-Up Lens but I can not find it.

Is the VCL-M3367 a +1 or +2 or +what?? thanks. Malcolm

VCL-M3367

3367 => 3.3 diopters, 67mm diameter

Thanks. That's what I was looking for. The M3367 is not close enough for me and I've been thinking of buying a more powerful close-up lens. Maybe I want/need a +10. malcolm

I would buy a couple of less powerful lenses and stack them.

A +10 diopter lens is as you know, staggeringly powerful, the depth of field minute, so frankly a couple of less powerful lenses might be more useful in the long run.
