    Lol.....this was worded deceivingly. 10x actually means 10 times life size in macro world. That would be like an MPE-65 with a 2x TC....which would be crazy. These shots aren't bad, but I can definitely see some softness....probably from the closeup filter. Considering this was done via a filter, not too bad I think.

    Nice pix, at least the first one. The second seems a bit light.

    I believe the OP means a "+10 close up lens" when is refers to a "10x macro filter". The strength of a close up lens is measured in diopters. It is always proper to mark them using a plus or minus symbol.

    No general use closeup attachment could ever be properly marked with a magnification (x) value. Only when the attachment is made for a specific lens could it be marked that way, and then it would have to be marked with a range of magnifications (e.g. 2-3.5x) unless the primary lens lens that it is mated with is both fixed focal length and fixed focus (e.g. the first two versions of the Medical-Nikkor 200mm f/5.6).
