...I finally ended with some different setup that seems to work really good. This consists of EL-Nikkor 50/2,8 (enlarger lens in M39) plus M39 - M 42 adapter plus M42 chinese variable extension tube.This is small, so good for the Q and significantly sharper then my standard 50's.
Cool, post some samples

I promise to post both. Unfortunatelly I have parts of the setup in 2 places now (it consists also of 2 cheap led video lamps - which is more handy then flash because I use 3rd party/selfmade adpater).

Would love to see a picture of the setup and some macros when you get the chance.

OK, here we go! Some first photos from my July vacation - so first tests. I didn't had a helicoid extension tube at time, so they were made using 12 mm K-mount tube or 20 mm tube.

I hope that my later photos are better, but they still wait for being developed. So I plan to post them later in Maqro/adapted lenses threads.
