hmmm im going to try it out and get:

mft retro adapter 58mm
step up rings 52-58 and 49-52 and 46-49

-i think it is right to go for stepUP rings, but im quite confused

-question for the physicist: when a extension tube gives magnification, then the stacked stepup rings should reduce the magnification of the reversed LENS?

(the 46-49 is to give my 49mm IR-filter a try on the gf-1. I think there wont be any handheld shots, but i hope the 20mm doesn't cause a hotspot....)
