Hi Ronnie

If I remember correctly, you used both the 300/4 AF-D and the 300/4 AF-S with tubes. Did you see any significant difference between the two regarding how well they take the tubes (contrast or sharpness degradation at high reproduction ratio)?

Thanks a lot!

That would be difficult to answer as I never used the AF version on a digital camera. So can't compare the two lense. When I went digital in 2002 I sold the AF to purchase the AF-S. I wanted the AF-S for a much closer minimum focus. I had to use too many tubes with the AF.

As far as the fit of the extension tubes, I don't remember any issues on either of them using Nikon extension tubes.
