Also, you can scotch tape/ rubber band the 25mm lens backwards onto the cam
over the gate (objective part of the lens closest to the gate), and it makes
it into an extreme macro. More micro, maybe. With good light there is a
clear sharp image with no depth of field to speak of. It has a lot less
light loss than extension tubes, I think.
Hope that helps
