Otherwise I might buy extension tubes (Kenko or something cheaper) and use them with my present primes like the Oly 45/1.8 or PL 25/1.4 which I learned from the feedback should be good to use with extension tubes.

Cheaper "dumb" extension tubes (no electrical contacts) won't allow you to control aperture or focus on Oly 45/1.8 or PL 25/1.4. There are some trick you can use to work around this, but you should be aware of the limitation.


Thanks for pointing this out! If I go for extension tubes to any of my m43 lenses I am now convinced to get the Kenko-tubes!
