Anybody have a handy table comparing various Lumix lenses?

I know the PL12-60 goes to 0.3x

The next bit would be to estimate working distance as minimum focus distance - lens length - flange focal distance, which should be a pretty good approximation of the actual working distance without filters or a hood. Since the Google sheet already has the lengths it's an easy calculation.

I would be very interested in a similar table, but with macro rings, Raynox DCR adapters, and magnification added.
