Hi,

I am using my Zuiko 9-18 behind an Athena 100mm-Port.

Since I am not a fan of changing and carying ports I would like to use a Macro-lens behind this port. Does anyone have a hint for me what lens to take?

Thank you in advance

I think you have a couple of choices. The Leica/Panasonic 45 or the Olympus 60. Both will require fiddling around with extension rings (do they exist for this housing, No I think) and or diopters and both will lose 25% of their magnification. It can be done but I don't know if either will fit behind that port.
