Can you use a EX-25 with a EC-20 ?

Would be grateful to know if you can use the following combo? ZD50mm + EC-20 + EX-25. I have already got the 50mm I have just ordered an EC-20 & just had a brain wave that the EX-25 may make things even better for macro photography ?

No. I have tried it You can only use one adapter with a lens. If you use more than one, the lens will not work.

I have seen some posts a couple of years back on DPreview I think, where a chap had by passed the circuit in the EX25 and used it with an EC14 and got some stunning results. It is possible but needs some fiddling
