Recommended Extension Tube set?
May 6, 2012

Well I did the forum search here and searched the Google on the Interwebs and still haven't had much luck.

I shoot with a Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS (the new model) and also have and use the new 1.4 tele with it and that's what I propose to use starting out in DSLR macro. I know my Sigma 17-50 is too short a focal length to use with tubes.

Any recommendations on an extension tube set? Amazon.com reviews on the Kenko show some folks are concerned that they flex too much under the weight of a longer focal length lens. Haven't seen any reviews on the Phottix set.

Yes, I want to maintain autofocus/metering if possible though most of my focusing will of course be manual.

Thanks,
Michael
