HELP! Massa cheapo extension tube stuck on D7000 body!
Jan 3, 2011

I bought some cheapo extension tubes from eBay a while ago, I've been using them without problems with my Nikon D60. I had to play with the rotation a bit in order to dismount them but it posed not much of a hassle.

Today I tried mounting them on my new D7000 but after wanting to dismount them the last bit of the whole assembly (the one that mounts directly on the camera) just won't detach no matter how I turn it. Apparently it gets loose but when I try to pull it out, it would simply stay put.

I've seen pictures of both mounts (those of the D60 and D7000) and the only difference I see is the AF-screw tidbit that the D7000 has in order to make autofocus work with lenses without internal motors. Could this be the bit that is keeping the extension put?

Please help, am beginning to freak-out!!

Promise not to use them EVER again!
