If you already have the amazing A*200mm F4.0 I can't see why you're searching for another solution, maybe only the FA*200mm F4.0 would top the A* for overall quality... however if you're searching for a longer working distance at high magnification then clearly achromats and telephoto lenses are a good option.

Dear Mike,

My Achromat experiments were before I managed to get the A* 200 macro lens. I also have a 86 mm close-up lens from B&W - but this one is more a softener than a close up ...

Best regards

Holger
