    Pros: Nicely built, full metal, with a nice and easy to use locking system, many magnification powers, and a decent price, this is perfect to discover macro, and maybe one day get a dedicated lens, who knows...? Cons: None OtherThoughts: If you want to go for this macro ring, you'll need to know a few things before: - A ring like this is better... Read more

    Pros: After making it fit it is working. Cons: Really bad fitting on the body: just doesn't fit! It is not just the coating, but you need to use a Dremel, a file or something like that to get some coating and material off on the body side. OtherThoughts: Buy something that fits! Maybe you can fit another adapter for example Canon-lenses on the... Read more

    Pros: * Cheap * Nice for macro * Set of 3 tubes Cons: * without contacts (yeah, there can't be contacts for that price, so it's not real cons) * hard to use (it's a little flimsy and hard to pull off mount adapter, if you use M42 screw lens with it) * weak trigger to bayonet mount OtherThoughts: If you want to try non-expensive macro - this wil...

    Pros: - Only pros - Good build quality. Made of metal - Rings easily changable and fits into the camera body Cons: - No cons OtherThoughts: - This is the best choice for macro mode for this price. - Better than macro filters, because there is no additional glass. - Cheaper than macro lens, but results lower image quality. - Your lens will work...

    Pros: Cheap extension tubes for playing around with macro work. No glass to distort your image quality. Worked with my M42 to K mount adapter. I've seen others from China that were cheap looking. These ones seems to appear a little better built. Cons: Won't communicate with auto lenses. This doesn't bother me, as I've got all manual lenses. Oth... Read more

    Pros: Its a better choice than macro filters, as it doesn't change your image, if you settle it right you can really make great macro photos with it Cons: actually it's impossible to screw the tube all the way in to the lens, although it does the job, and if used with careful you can work with it. OtherThoughts: As in any other macro tubes you... Read more

    Pros: The price is even cheaper than comparable do-it-yourself solutions. Very strong metal construction and the matte black finish matches black Pentax lenses and bodies from the 70s onward. I've successfully tested my set on several film bodies, my K100D and my K20 without any issues. Cons: Does not work well with automatic lens because the a... Read more

    Pros: + low price + made out of metal + three tubes yield six different combinations to fit your macro needs + extension tubes don't affect the image quality Cons: - the metal threads for attaching the tubes and mounts make a grating noise when screwed - the camera body mount does not fit so well, it only turns about 30 degrees before halting -...

    Pros: - they are great for macro/close-up photography - they are built from metal - you get three tubes, a body mount tube and a lens mount tube, to assemble into various combinations Cons: - the metal used in the mount mechanism, has some rust/dirt on it - Fitting the tubes to my Pentax K10D body is a bit thight. I can not turn it to lock, but... Read more
