"Closeup" Lenses/Achromats (Rather Dated?)

Here is a link to a database which is a decade old but which has information I have not seen elsewhere:


One error I spotted immediately:

The Raynox MSN-202 is 25 diopters, not "33".

The body is willing but the mind is weak.

Re: "Closeup" Lenses/Achromats (Rather Dated?)

There is some useful info on fuzzcraft.com, but the bookmarked page I had seems to be misbehaving at the moment; that is, it downloads, rather than opening in your browser.
However, there is a version on Google Cache which might be worth looking at and then saving, in case the site is on the way to going permanently off-line.

I've just saved it as a pdf
Best Regards

The nearest I have to a home page.
