At a UK camera fair yesterday I bought a Teleplus MC 7 2 x telephoto converter plus built-in zoom macro tube. It's designed to take a standard 50 mm mechanical focus lens (the one I bought is for the Contax/Yashica mount) so your f1.4 lens becomes a 100 mm f2.8 lens and you can use the zoom to get up to 1:1 macro. £30. I'm using it on a NEX 7 with an adapter where it has a FOV of 150 mm.

These aren't that rare and were made for lots of camera mounts
