For those of u with the 50mm Macro. Do u use any other adaptors for Macro photography? Just wondering how to get real close to insects without scaring them?

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....:confused:

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. :devil:

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. :thumbsup:

try using 50-200 + ext tube + close up filter. should be about 50cm of working distance.
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
