Macro buffs - give me some suggestions?

I'm thinking about getting into some Macro photography.  As a kid, I was always fascinated with various insects and maybe some flowers etc.

But before I invest heavily into the new 80mm - it may be prudent for me to "experiment" with some Extension Tubes and maybe pick-up an inexpensive used film lens or two.

What I have / will have:

  • X-T2 (expecting it any day now.  Traded-in my X-T1)
  • XF 23mm f1.4
  • XF 16-135 zoom
  • Fuji X - to - Pentax K-Mount Adapter
  • (Also a threaded adapter that allows screw-in lenses like OLD Pentax)
  • An old Tamron or Tokina zoom for Pentax (forget exact specs)

X-Tubes - your thoughts on Fujifilm vs. Aftermarket

What are the odds of my 18-135 being worthwhile to use with Extension Tubes?

Good inexpensive Film lens to look for for macro use
