err.. what camera ?
Maybe can get the metz 32 series for the flash ?
You can get a polariser, ND Filter or close up filter.
If you want better close up filter, can get the canon 250D or 500D which cost above $100.

$180 ! I got mine for only $100 at mscolor. Try call up Mscolor and check if they have stock and what price they are selling now.
According to a website, it says.

Canon Close-up lenses are for quick and easy close-up photography. The close-up lens is screwed on to the front of a lens like a filter. Close-up lenses 250D and 500D have two achromatic elements to correct chromatic aberrations. They do not degrade the high optical performance of EF lenses. Close-up lens 500 has only one element, making it more affordable.
The 250D is suited for lenses with a focal length anywhere from 30 to 135mm. The 500D and 500 are geared for lenses with a focal length anywhere from 70 to 300mm.

250D is +4 close up while 500D is +2 close up

250D 52mm is S$105 w/o GST and 58mm is S$145 w/o GST from CP.

250D is only S$105 with GST plus free delivery from TKfoto. (dunno if same price apply for different thread sizes)
While the 500D is S$125.
