Thanks for all the advice. I used a reversing ring on my Fuji S1 and S2. My wife had a serious illness a few years ago, and I sold my cameras and lenses. She's better now, so I'm starting over. Will extension tubes work with G lenses? Don't you need an adjustable aperture?

Yes extension tubes do work with g and e lenses - make sure that they are automatic tubes with pass through for electronic contacts - most are.

They will also af with AF-S lenses although not with screw drive af lenses of course.

Not sure about other brands but Kenko tubes do support screw-drive AF on Nikon.

Thanks Bill useful information and I stand corrected  - I’ve only used cheapo Chinese tubes like meike
