MCEX-16 Extension tubes

Hi guys,

Sorry for the newbie question but I have searched this forum and did not find the answer/confirmation I need.

Well, I bought an used MCEX-16 and was trying it. Never used extension tubes before. When I plugged it and then screw in the lens I thought that I had a defective unit because I could not focus anywhere. Then, after a while (i can be slow ), I noticed that in fact I could focus but only a at certain distance (it seams like the minimum focus distance but I'm not sure) but no other. Is this normal? I mean, I was aware that I could not focus at infinity with these extension tubes but I was not expecting to be restricted to focus at the minimum focus distance and no other...

I'm using the extension tube with my X-Pro2 paired with my 23 and 35 primes.

Thanks in advance for your insights!
