Not with the extension tubes, but I'm getting better results with the EM10's IS and the 45-200 compared to on the EPL2, either with the in body stabilization or the lens stabilization.

Does that say those are 30 bucks?!? Might need to experiment a little.

Yeah, the older Pen stabilization systems are less than optimal. The personal I replying to there would be using his 45-200 with an even better stabilized E-M1.

The tubes Bob is using were $30. I'm sure he'd point you to them to look at. Can't hardly go wrong at that price.

Yeah, I understand that, just mentioning that the 45-200 OIS<the EM10. So surely it will compare even worse to the EM1.

....well, the MEIKE tubes I've been using have 'chipped' small pieces from the latching land on both the 10 & 16 pieces.

I won't recommend any of the all plastic but there are are several sets having machined aluminum mounting rings for under $50.

Search Amazon.com for 'micro 43 extension tube' .... lots of choices

Ah. Yeah, I wouldnt want to risk getting plastic bits on the sensor. Even if that doesn't happen, and extra 20 bucks or so seems worth it for the metal.
