Extension tubes with Nikon 70 - 200?
May 22, 2012

I was looking at a different forum and one of the ops indicated that he shot all his close ups with a Nikon 300 f4 lens and extension tubes. I do not have a 300mm but do have a 70 - 200 lens.

1. Is it possible to use the extension tubes with this lens?

2. What extension tubes would you recommend for this?

3. Do you still have the ability to use AF, aperture and shutter priority?

I have never used extenstion tubes with any lens and am not familiar with their capabilities (other than they reduce the focus distance). So any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
