I used the 40-150 with a 16mm extension tube yesterday for some botanical garden pics. The day was pretty windy so I used C-AF on my E-M10 IV and shot high silent bursts.
Here's SOOC, both the original and crop from same.

I certainly wish you could post your images for all to see rather than for only those that are subscribed, but that's your choice

These turn out very well. I like the green arachnid composition. Does the extension change the minimum focus distance?
Yes, with the 16mm tube and the lens out to a full 150mm, I get solid auto focus at 16" from the front of the extended lens.. Without the 16mm tube, my autofocus is 25-26" from the front of the lens. Of course you lose a lot on the far distance with the tubes, so there is that tradeoff.

Trying something different today.

As some of you know I seem to have this affinity for trying out inexpensive camera gear and today was another one of those days.
Today it was my Olympus E-M10 III entry level camera with the "Plastic Fantastic" $99 40-150 f/4-5.6 zoom with the addition of a Raynox DC150 close up lens attached to the front. Focusing at 150mm was limited to about 6" from the subject and depth of field was razor thin at that distance. But I did manage a few keepers...this one was the best.

This fly was just a tad bigger than a pin head. The second image shows the outfit with the Raynox attached and an iPhone 7s for size comparison.

Would love to see more of that combo. I considered getting Raynox 150 for a while now.

Fairly old images, so I'm not exactly sure what setup I used for these. 40-150, then either Raynox 250, extension tubes, or a combination of both. Bokeh in combination with all is fantastic, but fringing is a problem on this lens. 75-300, possibly because of zero coating, performs better, but it's trickier to use.

Hello, from Singapore. I got to admit, this lump of plastic makes very good pictures. Loving every single one of your pictures! I got my lens free when I bought my EP3. Now using it with my Pen F.
Have great day!
Anyway, I am still learning and pic below was edited using the Olympus Workspace.

It is beneath the water surface but the 40-150 did a great job.
