G1 with legacy lenses for macro

I've done a lot of research and torn between 3 options

Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm F3.5 macro
Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm F1.8
INDUSTAR I-61 LD 2.8/55

I've seen good things on all 3!
I'm on a tight budget and need to buy adaptor and extension tubes too.

The main reason for the lens is for jewellery shots, but no doubt I'll want to take photos of insects!

It will be my first manual lens so I'm not expecting perfect results any time soon. Any lens easier to use than the others? Can any lens be used hand held or tripods only?

I'm thinking maybe the Olympus macro lens and purchase the faster Olympus later on?
