I'd like to get some cheap macro going with my OM-D. I have the 14-42 II, 40-150 and 20mm lenses (as well as Canon 50mm 1.8 FD and Canon adapter).

Should I go with MCON-P1 (to use with 14-42 & 40-150)

Extension tubes (Kenko, or similar)

or a legacy macro lens, such as Canon 50mm f3.5 FD?

Thanks!

There have been a LOT of threads on this in the past couple of months. Here are links to a few to get you started...you might want to use the search function to find more, too:
