Hello, I don't know if this is the right section to ask this question, but I want to get a B+W Close-up NL +5 Lens for my Panasonic dmc-Fz50 camera.

What is driving me nuts is the "NL" part, what does it stand for?, what does it specify?, I've been searching with google and the best I could find is that it means "non linear".

Is it anything like the "linear - circular" thing for polarizer filters?, would I be better off getting a linear close-up filter instead.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Just my guess but that's the diopter value for their close-up filter:

thanks a lot, I hope that's what it stands for.

It says that the +10 works for digital, I hope the +5 does too, specially for the fz50.
