    The one capability I've missed since switching to the GF1 (from a Canon DSLR) is macro. I'd love the PL 45mm but it's too expensive for the small amount of dabbling in macro that I do, so onto eBay I went in search of something more affordable.

    The cheap adapter I bought is deeper than I expected so I probably won't use the bellows beyond minimum extension very often.

    Have only taken a few shots so far, but here's one of the better ones:

    Lovely photo and a very attractive setup! I have a Canon FD macro lens (50mm f/3.5) but am interested in bellows or extension tubes in the near future. Great to see a GF1 hanging off the end of such a setup.
