    ok,on a serious note,i move in real slow.
    But i think 50mm is too short.

    With the EX25, you have to be closer but the magnification is greater. Most people would use the Ext1.4 to achieve a further working distance. Some would use both....

    Maybe some other macro guru can comment? There is one here, but can't remember who...

    i think the macro guru is megaweb.

    personally i find ZD 50mm is a tad short for insects, but its great for portraits & products. a ZD100mm 1:1 wud be most ideal.

    According to Olympus' roadmap, a ZD 100mm F2.0 macro prime is supposed to be release this year or early next year. That might be a winner of a lens.

    Haha, only got 50mm leh... will try your suggested set up one day if I get the 50-200 but that is unlikely as I rather buy a Pana Fz10 or 20 with adaptor and add on lens. The results are quite amazing. Look at Tchuanye's post
