closeup attachment for GL2?

Is there a close up lens, or attachment, for the GL2. I have looking but can't find one anywhere?

Don't know if the above is of any help. I have no experience of this lens so can't vouch for how it would work on a GL2. I'm also interested in a macro solution so anyone with experience, please let us know!

When I read the description, the first thought that came to mind was, "reading glasses". ;)

Hoya make some closeup lenses as well - I've used them on my XM2 and they are very good and a lot cheaper than the Century Optics offerings.
If you get a +1 and a +2 diopter, you can add them together (they'll screw into each other) to make +3 etc...
