Not to get too far off topic, but if you used Johan Ingles-le Nobel's Raynox calculator it should be legit. The minimum focus distance of the Olympus 60 is 19 cm, though, which gives 2.54x and just under an 8 cm working distance estimate from Johan's calculator.some random online Raynox calculator I found
If anyone's wondering, I used an Olympus DF Plan 1x on the Panasonic 45-200 II at 200 mm f/8 for the image above (I don't have any Raynox lenses and the 9-18 is the only Olympus ILC lens I own). See Johan's coupled lens page for an intro and basic approximations for calculating magnification. The DF Plan 1x has focal length and working distance similar to a Raynox DCR-150+250 stack but is better corrected and comes with corresponding penalties in size, weight, and cost.
