Product Highlights
  • Two Extension Tubes
  • Compatible with Micro Four Thirds Lenses
  • Use Individually or Combined
  • Macro Conversion

The Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Micro Four Thirds Lenses by Kenko is a set of two extension tubes for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. This set has tubes of 10 mm and 16mm. The tubes can be used individually or in combination to obtain the desired magnification.

Extension tubes are hollow cylinders without optics designed to enable a camera's lens to focus closer than its minimum focusing distance and therefore provide more magnification. They are placed between the lens and body and are particularly useful in allowing lenses without macro capability to shoot macro, but in general, they offer increased magnification for whatever need. 

An extension tube increases lens magnification by an amount equal to the extension distance divided by the lens focal length. For example, adding a 25 mm extension tube to a 50 mm lens will give a magnification gain of 0.5X. Therefore, if the lens's original magnification was 0.15X, then the new magnification will be 0.15X+0.5X=0.65X.

Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain auto focus and TTL auto exposure with Micro Four Thirds lenses.

Note! 1. When using extension tubes the lens will not focus to infinity. The focus range will be greatly limited to a very close focusing distance.2. There is light fall off when using any extension tube, sometimes the equivalent of 3 f-stops of light is lost when using multiple extension tubes together. This light lost can affect the camera's ability to auto focus. Manual focusing is recommended should the lens begin to "hunt" (not lock onto the subject).

      Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Micro Four Thirds Lenses:

      I use this on my OMD EM -1. It really lets you get focus closer to subjects.
      The first time I used it I found it difficult to find the range for the depth of field. Unlike my experience with extenders on full frame cameras, this set really limits the depth of field to a few feet away.

        Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Micro Four Thirds Lenses:

        Kenko products are affordable and useful for what they are made to do. The auto extension tubes are no exception. I just use them one at a time though 'cuz the camera won't go on auto (you have to change to manual) if both extension tubes are used at the same time.

              Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Micro Four Thirds Lenses:

              I found that I really enjoy using the extension tubes for very close macro work. I'm quite pleased with the results I have had so far. The working distance is quite close to the subject, which I'll need to get used to but overall great product. I've had multiple people tell me I need to submit my photos to websites or create my own portfolio and try to sell eventually. That is quite reassuring as I am an amateur photographer. Thanks

                      Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Micro Four Thirds Lenses:

                      I am using these tubes set with my Panasonic GX1 in my first approach to macro photography.
                      I have the Lumix GX Vario PZ 14-42mm lens (pancake), which features electric powered-zoom and focus operation. Both works just fine with these tubes and I have not experienced any issues using them.
                      They are very well built and justify their price vs. cheaper / lower quality alternatives.
                      I am still learning as I use them but have tried them separately and combined and so far I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures obtained.

                          A great addition to the Oly 60mm macro lens. It further increases your magnification witout adding any extra lens elements that could result in a less sharp picture. All AF and lens functions are maintained. An excellent macro tool.
