i'm using the 14-45 and 45-200 panasonic lenses and still trying to decide what to do for a macro solution. I've seen some canon FD fit macro lenses resonably priced on ebay, so thinkning of getting one of these with an adapter, but all suggestions welcome! I'm trying for a solution for under £100 if possible!!

Welcome! Using a Magnon 70-200 (Pentax mount) for macro. Not very portable because of weight, but it's nice to use.

I've found a Sigma FD fit 28mm macro on Ebay, plus an adapter from shamino for about £50 for both. Going ot give them a try when they arrive.
