    For your case, it's similar to Canon's S2 and S3 IS at 0cm macro.
    I was using up to +9 close-up. Problem with the lens-twisting trick is that it is very sensitive so you can't really adjust it properly.

    Ahhh...i only use a +4 cos i think if +too much, won't the lens get so close until it hits the subject?

    I've heard of a +10 too. My +4 can bring my 50mm to about 10cm away from the subject or a bit closer.

    Ohh....think for me 1 close up filter is enough.

    I can only achieve up to 1:3 magnification using my +4.

    I manage "1:1" on the basis that 36mm ruler appears as full-frame of course this is not really optical 1:1 but given the limitation of digicam sensor, is good enough. I still get 36mm spread over 2592 pixels.

    depends on what you want to shoot, more + is not always better as you may not be able to focus so close, or the object is too big for +8. you probably need a set of +2, +4 and +8.

    erm… I didn't say it is no good. I mean sometimes what you want to shoot is too large for +8. so you would need to have +2 and +4 as well in your filter set.
