Re: Get tubes for 2 reasons

Cheaper, yes, and definitely lighter weight, and I don't care about auto, anyway....but, equal image quality? Hmmm....I don't know....

a LOT cheaper! 10 bucks if you can live without auto (you don't need it)

tubes are just hollow light metal, carry them in your bag or pocket at all times

so.. save $$ and weight and have fun

For what you intend to shoot tubes will give you equal image quality.

If all you have is a zoom lens them you might want to go for the raynox (works best at zoom telephoto) not a good match with the pancake 16-50 though
