Kenko Extension Tubes Min. Focus Distance Test
Mar 23, 2013

I got the Kenko extension tubes for close up shots.  For those who are interested in the Kenko extension tubes, I did a simple min. focus distance test here using the 75mm prime.  The auto focus speed is not lightening fast but reasonable.

This set up cannot give you real 1:1 macro.  Magnification is about 0.4~0.5 with both tubes on, good enough for close up.

Hope this helps.

The target circle is 1.5cm in diameter.  The min. distances show here are measured from the target to the sensor plane mark on EM5

Here is a flower shot with 10+16mm tubes but it is not taken at min. focus distance.
