not quite what you were asking, but here is a focus stacked composite at f/8 using the DA 70 plus Raynox 150. This was composited using some 30 images, so it has much more detail than a single shot would.

I've been trying out the CZM program that yeatzee mentioned and getting a little better at using it. I also realized to my surprise that my version of Photoshop(CS4) has a focus stacking routine, so I ran the same set of files through both applications and the PS left several gaps/holes where it misread, while the CZM got it mostly right. Only limitation of CZM is that the errors it makes are tougher to correct since PS allows you to tweak each mask. most of this is probably user error, however. :)

depending on how much DOF and overall control you need, another option is to reverse mount that 50/1.7. That lens works very well in reverse without any Raynox.

here is my 50/1.7 mounted backwards:

it will clip to a 67mm but won't work on my 72mm.

for a 49mm i use a steup up ring to 52mm for a perfect fit. you can sort of jam it on a 49 though, but it lacks finesse.

for my spiderweb and dewdrops shot, i used a Vivitar 90/2.8 which i believe to be 1:1 plus the Raynox 150 out front, so it is not very extreme, but just a slight boost on a fairly normal macro focal length.

thanks.
this was late afternoon and the sun was going down behind the fly to my right. I used a Pentax AF-540 with a $40 O-Flash and then aimed a tiny halogen flashlight on the wings from behind to coax out that irridescent effect.
Since the fly was trapped, i had a bit of time to get the shot positioned as I wanted, then i was able to push the fly back through with my thumb and he flew away.

those bees are killer!

I finally got around to pulling my Raynox out of the bag yesterday and got this fly that became trapped in some mesh fencing.

I am using the Raynox150 on my Cosina 55/1.2 mainly to decrease the minimum focus disctance on that lens but still be able to play with very shallow DOF. The raynox allows me to get in much closer like this:
