There is now:

Here is the current setup for my Printing Nikkor 105mm (at 1:1). It currently connects to m4/3 tubes, then to M42, with an M42 helicoid. The magnification can be lower or higher, using an additional helicoid or tubes.
Two flash guns (FL-300R) are mounted on ball-joint shoes, which are each attached to a slightly modified canon 65mm lens tripod adapter ring.
Additional light is from a powerful flash (FL-50R) on the L-bracket.
All flash are controlled (RC) by the unit (FL-LM2) on the hot shoe.
The present extension rings are not entirely up to handling over 1kg of lens, plus the flash guns. It will be replaced by film OM tubes and telescopic tubes.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
