Since you cannot close the Aperture I don't know how useful it can be for Macro....
The DoF is really shallow....
Changing the magnification via extension rings should get me to f8 (effective) with no problem. I can stack then, as I have no aperture control to lose. Subject to the working distance being acceptable, it doesn't matter whether closing down the diaphragm or spreading the image circle gets me there, both select the centre of the lens. That will involve flash.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
