The Nikon PK-13 Auto Extension Tube provides 27.5mm of extension, and can be used with any Nikon SLR lenses longer than 50mm, or with a reversed 50mm lens (using a reverse adapter).

Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. Getting closer has the effect of magnifying your subject (making it appear larger in the viewfinder and in your pictures). They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality.

The extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film plane. By moving the lens father away from the film or CCD sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus.

The PK-13 fits between the camera body and lens either single or in combinations. Nikon cameras using these support them in Manual focus mode only and they are considered non-CPU lens attachments. See your cameras manual for more details on compatibility. Provides perfect coupling and retains both AI aperture and meter coupling. Does not support AF operation.

Note: Exposure meter does not work with D90, D60, D3000, D5000. G-type lenses cannot be used. Supports AF-S lenses in Manual mode only.

The PK-13 provides a reproduction ratio of 1:1 when used with the Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 lens.

    PK-13 27.5mm AI Extension Tube is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just another accessory ...tubes are a necessity for macro photography. Nikons extension tubes are superior in build quality when compared to others manufactured for Nikon cameras. The mating tolerances are tighter and they are less likely to sag and lose connection when used with additional tubes. I'm replacing my PK-13 after 10 years of use because the locking pin snapped...my fault. Reordering the same component after 10 years of use, given today's advancement in technology, should tell you something...other than Nikon has not updated their equipment. But...no need to mess with perfection.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PK-13 a dissapointment Bought the produt to do some shots of auto parts for an e-commerce website. Overall it has the typical Nikon build quality but has no electrical contacts for lens automation. My fault, I knew it was manual, and thought it shouldn't be a problem, but didn't relate that to the fact that there is no aperture ring on the newer Nikon lenses. So every shot was at the minimum aperture, in my case almost f42! Ended up buying a set of Kenko tubes and although they are mostly plastic, they work perfectly with my equipment. The PK-13 is now gathering dust. Very disapointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Physics still works In the digital age, there are still some old fashioned photographic gadgets that work just fine. Like this extension tube, for example. Put it between your lens and the object, and you'll get really, really close with no additional optical or digital distortion. The trade off is less light reaching the lens, so be prepared for longer exposures and the need to keep your camera REALLY steady to get the picture sharp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the money I'm a wedding photographer and needed something to get some really decent clear mega up close shots of the rings and this did the trick. Combined with my 85mm the shots are crystal clear - serves it's purpose for what I need it for :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect item for my use I used to use film bodies with my bellows for macro shoots. When I converted to digital bodies I needed room between the bellows rail and the handgrip on the digital body. The Pk-13 gave me the added clearance I needed to be able to mount the body to the bellows. Again Nikon and its compatible equipment rules the roost!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well It's great if you are not ready to invest in a macro lens. Definitely use a tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Choice As an extension tube, the 27.5 one offerd by Nikon is outstanding. It is right in the size range that is most useful for a variety of macro shots. It fits well and fuctions just as intended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Item Havn't taken that many shots with it but seems that it will do what I want. Good quality. Only complaint is that is doesn't come with a case, just a plastic bag. Come on Nikon!
