P.S. (Re: Macro Rings/Tubes)

Yes, I'm aware that you don't need to use macro rings or tubes with a macro lens. However, from what I've read and the sample images I've seen, if you're going to use rings/tubes at all, it seems that they work better with macro lenses than with non-macro lenses. I don't think I'd be satisfied with the extremely narrow depth of field that a non-macro lens produces with extension tubes.
