I haven't seen it on DPReview's announcement or in this forum, so for the benefit of the macro shooters, Kenko is releasing a set of macro extension tubes, a 10mm and 16mm which can be stacked and support electronic comms with the camera.

Thom Hogan has a page about it on

According to Thom  AF should work.

And the linked Kenko product page is here:

I was surprised when I saw this news on 43rumors few days ago but I think it is only new in USA. It should be the same as the existing set.  I posted a simple min. focus distance test of this Kenko extension tube set using the 75mm f1.8.  Max. magnification is about 0.45.

Take a look if you are interested.

I have also the Tamron 90mm marco but want to have autofocus from time to time.
