meike Automatic Extension Tube Set
1

I just received my meike auto extension tube set to use with my E-M5. I made a few test shots today and was most pleased with the Olympus 40-150mm zoom because of the its ability to focus at a longer distance from the subject. When I used the Leica 25mm 1.4 I hade to take off the lens shade and get less than 6 inches from the subject.

The extension tubes are made of plastic but all automatic functions seem to work fine. I think that I will enjoy using the auto extension tubes for flower photos and the like.

The yellow flower was about 1.5 inches in diameter. It is not tack sharp but made a pleasing photo.  The red cherry tomato would have benefitted from better lighting and a higher shutter speed.
