Lens recommendation

Hi there.
I'm looking for some ideas of a suitable macro lens for my E-M5 II.
I have a 12 - 40 1: 2.8 Pro - which I will keep on the camera most of the time. I've just purchased a 40 - 150 1:4-5.6R for those rare occasions I need a bit more reach - and because it was light and cheap.
Now I'm looking for a suitable macro lens as come the summer I like to get in amongst the bugs.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good macro lens, Olympus or otherwise, that doesn't break the bank but that will give good sharp results?

Alternatively, am I likely to get good results with extension tubes and if so, are these all a much of a muchness and if not, what should I be looking for?
