For manual aperture lenses only! – Macro Extension Tube/Ring for Nikon SLR/DSLR Cameras Reviews

posted by ngill85 on 05/25/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheaper than buying dedicated macro lenses, with results that look far better than the <$10 price tag would suggest.
Threads seemed to be good quality, and everything fit my Nikon D70s smoothly.
Cons:
Only works with completely manual lenses (manual focus and aperture)
The QC department managed to miss the release screw not being in the pin - it was screwed into the spring UNDER the pin. I had to fix this to release it from my lense (SCARY)
Other:
Bottomline:
If you have manual aperture lenses and want to feel out macro photography, this is a good way to feel out the water without forking over $300 for a new lense.
