Re: Semi-macro solution: which close-up lens for the 1.8/45?

There is quite a big selection available: even some cheap models, such as Opteka have multiple elements and coating. I guess there wont be a big difference between the not-so-cheap (30+$) and the premium omes.

If you want the best quality look to some of the higher end multi element models - the cheaper single element models will work, but will add some amount of chromatic abberation to the image, the higher end multi element lenses go some way to correcting this.

Thanks for the examples! The Raynoxes are on the top of my list:)

I saw very good results with m.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 and Kenko extension tubes for m43.

I use m.Zuiko 40.150mm with Raynox DCR150 and DCR250:
