One other option, is to obtain an old manual short focal length lens in the 28mm to 50mm range, any brand will do, and get (or make) a matching reversing ring for your body.

This makes for an excellent and high magnification macro setup, you just don't hear about people doing it any more !

Here is how to make your own reversing ring set-up:

You just need to visit a photo junk shop to get a nice old manual lens and a matching filter you can destroy also a body cap for your body that will be cut up

The shorter the focal length the higher the magnification!
