Default macro lens for G1

I own G1 and as Panasonic has no macro lens, I decided to try Konica Hexanon 52mm 1:1,8 Lens out. As you have such lens, I wanted to ask you what kind of adapter I need to mount these lens?

some solutions:

a) new Konica-AR/mFT adapter ... ~ $100

b) FT/mFT adpter + modification of lens

c) Pana mFT adapter + modifying Konica lens (some pages before)

d) waiting for the Pana macro

Thanks for such a fast and detailed answer!

I think, I'll go for nr. 1

Did I understood you correct, in this page you used close up lens (like thiese http://cgi.ebay.com/MACRO-Close-Up-L...3%3A1|294%3A50), than adapter and than Konica macro lens?

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pa...ailable-8.html

That means, it's possible to use close up lens before macro lens, to get even bigger magnification?

Close-up lenses (+1, +2, +4, +10) are a simple (and cheap) method to make macro photos.

You can also use a (snap on) achromat like Raynox 150 oder Raynox 250, this are 2 or 3 "combined" lenses to get better quality.

or you use an adapter with filter thread to connect any lens revers

or a set of macro rings

http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=mac...pter&_osacat=0

or an adapter for macro lens

or a Pana macro lens ... and so on

Your pictures inspires me to learn my G1 better!

Sorry for asking you so many questions, but it looks like I've found my macro problem solution - I gott a crazy idea to buy Tamron 60-300mm F/3,8-5,4. And I fullfilled this immediately.
I have heard that this thing could work together with M42 adapter - like this one
http://cgi.ebay.com/M42-lens-to-Panasonic-Lumix-G1-GH1-micro-4-3-adapter_W0QQitemZ150348257727QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLe ns_Accessories?hash=item23017459bf&_trksid=p3286.c 0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A15|66%3A2|39%3A1|240%3A1318|3 01%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

And M42 to Tamron adaptall, to mount lens on. Like this one:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Tamron-Adaptall-...3%3A1|294%3A50

My purchase was a bit fast, but price was so tempting that I could'nt stand So I really hope I didn't made a mistake. What is your opinion?
