I was using the 60mm at 1:1 so no more available via the 60mm but I don't know if more can be gained by distancing the 202 from the 60mm, or, for that matter, the 60mm from the camera.

In the set up that I used I mounted the 202 on the 60mm via a step up/step down ring combo. I did this so that I could use a Metz 15MS-1 ring flash is a simple manner.

I used the 55mm Metz adapter which slides neatly over the end of the 60mm, then a 46 to 52 step up ring which has an O/D large enough to retain the Metz, then a 52 to 37 step down ring to mount the 202.

This resulted in an uncluttered working environment but I've no idea whether it gave greater or less magnification compared to mounting the 202 with the Raynox adapter. I imagine that the change would be slight, in any case.
