14-54 mk 1 and ex 25?

Hi

I find that I get pretty good semi macro's with the original 14-54 zoom on my E3, and with the 1.4 t/c i can get slightly closer. How does the ex 25 perform on this lens? ( I am not a massive macro shooter, but like to do odd shots of leaves, nature, etc)

I've got an EX25 but never use it - it's too limiting in range. As soon as you put it on a once in a lifetime shot will appear, but will be out of the focus range! You're best off saving the money to buy a Zuiko 35mm macro, or saving up a lot more for the 50mm macro.

The official Olympus line is that it is not useable on the 14-54 except at 54mm focal length due to 'focusing impossibility'. Even at 54mm it will only focus from 17.2 to 22.2 cm. MF only.

So pretty much useless.
