Re: Extension tubes - not better, but chipper
In reply to Simon Zeev, Mar 30, 2012

I have this set as well- and really only use it with 2 things- manual µ4/3 lenses (CV Nokton is it- and not very useful as you only need a tiny tube to for native µ4/3 anyway), and legecy glass- using an adapter. I have a variety of different lens mounts, so rather than go Lens -> Tubes -> Adapter, I can use one set of tubes and go Lens -> Adapter -> Tubes.

I brought those tubes a mont ago.

They are surely not better, the don't have electrical contacts to control the focus or the aperture, but the set cost 11$ including shipping.
What can you expect for 11$?
I am not a macro photographer, so I am enjoying this set.
