    * Very easy to use * Cheap compared to other similar products * Red point to indicate right orientation * Lock mechanism to avoid accidental loosening of lens * Built of metal * Sometimes it is difficult to disconnect two rings * No support for auto-focus and auto-apperture (of course for this price) Not all lenses are suitable for this extension - ...

    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...? None If you want to go for this macro ring, you'll need to know a few things before: - A ring like this is better (optically speaking) than a magnifying ... Read more

    After making it fit it is working. 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. Buy something that fits! Maybe you can fit another adapter for example Canon-lenses on the other side to use an older Canon ... Read more

    * Cheap * Nice for macro * Set of 3 tubes * 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 If you want to try non-expensive macro - this will be your first step. Yeah, extension ... Read more

    - Only pros - Good build quality. Made of metal - Rings easily changable and fits into the camera body - No cons - 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 only in Manual mode. If your lens ... Read more

    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. Won't communicate with auto lenses. This doesn't bother me, as I've got all manual lenses. Others commented about ... Read more

    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 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. As in any other macro tubes you will need a lot of light to take ... Read more

    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. Does not work well with automatic lens because the aperture on these ... Read more

    + 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 - 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 - the threads and ...

    - 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 - 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 it holds enough ... Read more
