Re: Cheap Macro setup ($300) : GX1 + FD 50mm f1.8 + Fotodiox extension tube

I would not call $300 cheap for macro, (especially for these kinds of results), even if this does include the GX1.

Once you start using extension tubes, the benefits of using a true macro lens (with tubes) becomes quite clear.

At the kind of magnifications you are using here, and the subject, you really need a tilt lens and/or focus stacking.
