Hi all,
I'm researching to see if anyone has any information about a variable diopter. It's basically a lens attachment that mounts to the front of the "taking" lens and allows us to dial different strengths of diopter from zero to plus (whatever it allows) in order to go from a wide shot to an extreme close up on the fly. Thanks for any help.

I failed to ask if this product still exists and if so, where would I find it? Thanks again...

Yes, actually I saw one today. It was labeled as a retro focus variable diopter. It looks like the front group of elements from a primo macro zoom.
