?? Extension: Nikkor 50mm f1.4 for copy 35mm slides

Hello,

I will have access to a Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens on a D5100 body to copy color slides. Can someone please let me know what is the normal close focus limit on the 50mm (about 0.5 meter?) and what is the approximate "tube length" of the lens-extension I would need to nearly fill the frame with a 35mm slide? (Or, a method to calculate it?)

Thank you

RUcrAZ
