Re: E-3 or new lense for E-1 for close ups?

The best screw-on macro adaptor lens I have used is the Opteka 10x HD Macro available from 47th Street Photo for very little. It has 4 elements and has remarkable clarity when used with the 50mm and will no doubt do the same with the 35mm. On a zoom lens it will be best at between 25 and 50mm. It is available in lots of sizes.

This is an Anthrenas beetle, about 1.7mm long, in the middle of a wild daisy flower:

And for a more normal size insect:
