Right now, I want to shoot some macro shots but dont want to buy the zuiko 35mm macro because working distance is too close, so I am thinking of buying a macro filter/converter of some sort for my 40-150mm lens for my E500 until the sigma 105mm macro comes out. I was wondering if anyone have used the Raynox DCR 250 or any other kinds of macro filters/converter that would work? I am just not sure if the Raynox would vignette on the 40-150. Besides the Raynox DCR 250, does anyone have a better recommendation? Thanks

If image quality is foremost, before using any kind of conversion lens (on the front end), I'd try extension tubes first. Check out the Oly site regarding working distance.
