The Meike MK-Z-AF1 auto extension tubes are an inexpensive way . It retains AF , exif transmission and even allows use of the focus shift feature . Both tubes on your 50mm would give approx 0.73:1 reproduction ratio which is probably enough for your uses.

You can work out the reproduction ratio for different focal lengths here

Jim,

Thanks for the suggestion and the reference to the macro calculator.  I don’t know why I didn’t consider extension tubes more previously.  I suppose since I’ve always used a macro lens previously, that was my first thought.
I ended up ordering a set of the Mieke rings and I’m quite pleased with them initially.  They appear to work quite well on the 50 and just fine on the 24-70/2.8, although the working distance is very short (with almost the same magnification).
