Meike automatic extension tubes?

Hi everyone,

I have an om-d and still uses the olympus 50mm f/2 macro with mft/ft adapter once in a while for macrophotography. Recently, I realized I occasionally need to go to higher magnification and was looking at extension tubes. I have heard about the kenko automatic extension tubes for macro but I never heard about the meike equivalent:

It seems it is made out of Brass and ABS (plastic). The quality is probably not as high as the kenko equivalent but otherwise, it looks very similar for a third of the price.

So here are my few questions:

- Is there anything special I should check before buying one set?

- Does anybody have experience with these meike tubes?

- Do these tubes work when used together with a mft/ft adapter  on the om-d (so that I can still use my 50mm f/2)?

Thank for your help
