Inexpensive macro options for m43

Looking at the different macro options... hopefully less expensive than the Panaleica 45mm f/2.8 and not weighting a lot.

a. Extension tubes... how well do they really work? And I cannot find any specifically for micro four thirds, so I'd have to buy one for some other mount and use with an adapter. And for which lenses do the extension tubes work well?

b. Reversing adapters... how well do they really work? Again, I don't find any micro four thirds ones, only for other mounts.

c. Legacy lenses... I'm looking at 90mm Vivitars and Tokinas mostly to also serve as tele/portrait lenses. They aren't that cheap or light though. Any other suggestions?
