P.S. Forgot to mention that another lens on which the rings should work very well is the 75/1.8. The magnification without add-ons is 0.1 in this case. With the rings, you get nearly 1:2 (0.47).

I was thinking that they would be perfect on the 75mm, but you know....if I had that kind of money for a lens right now, I'd probably spring for the metal Kenko's to go with it, too 

I had the money to spring for the 75 and don't regret that for a second. It is indeed lovely. I'd have enough to spring for the Kenkos too but since I am not sure I really need extension tubes I get a bit stingy. Fifty bucks is somehow OK even if I'd hardly ever use the rings. But at 200, I start feeling the pressure.
