Macro converter with the Olympus 45mm f1.8?

I found a barely used 23 year old Austrian made Eumig Makro converter 'filter', a relic from my film photography days. It has a 40.5mm thread and it occurred to me that with a 37-40.5mm step-up ring I could use this with my Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens. That lens has a decent 0.5m close focus already and might give good results with a converter.

Anyone used the 45mm with a macro converter?

Yes - used it with the Raynox 250. Works rather well.
