Macro Options with Nikon 1 System Cameras

Thought it might be useful to start this thread to discuss macro equipment options and experiences using a Nikon 1 camera (V1, V2, V3, J1 ...). One of my first questions: does the list below include all the best macro options available for Nikon 1 shooters?

Ft1 plus Nikon micro lens: e.g. 40, 60, 85, 105, 200.

Ft1 plus Nikon non-micro lens.

Ft1 plus third party macro lens.

CX lens plus auto extension tubes.

Closeup lens filter (Nikon, Canon, Raynox ...) with step up ring.

Also, I believe Nikon has patented a 37mm f/2.4 CX micro lens.

FYI, I picked up a couple of inexpensive extension tubes from B&H which are small and light and easy to toss in the camera bag. This is the opposite of some of the longer micros which likely require a tripod for use. Anyway, hope to learn from those in the know. Thanks.
