The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG contains three tubes of different length - 12mm, 20mm, and 36mm - which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. Actual magnification effect changes with each specific lens.

This DG Extension tube set has upgraded "Gate-Array IC" circuitry to work better with digital SLR's and some of the digital SLR lenses, like the Nikon DX (e.g. 17-55mm, 10.5mm) digital-only lenses.

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 farther 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.

When using the camera's TTL metering system, no exposure compensation will be required (exposure compensation is required for handheld meters).

The Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG is compatible with Nikon DSLR cameras and F-mount lenses and is optimized to work with Autofocus lenses.
Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain auto focus and TTL auto exposure with most Nikon lenses given there is enough light (at f/5.6 or brighter) to activate the cameras AF system properly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have for budget macro I have been a big extension-tube fan for years- and when I just bought a Nikon D90 the availability of this set was a key factor in my decision. I do a lot of nature macro work and use these on my zoom lenses. Oh- are they SWEET with the Nikon 18-55 and 55-200. The secret to using them with zoom lenses is that your zoom control is now a coarse focus control and the regular focus(autofocus) is a fine focus. Using these at shorter focal lengths is great for static objects like barkscapes; longer focal lengths are great for getting insects from a distance. I use an off-camera flash in low power mode to avoid any motion blur.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lotza Fun!!! Numerous photog friends of mine do great Macro work and, interestingly, they all crow about using these handy, inexpensive Kenko extension tubes to perfect the image output from their various macro and non-macro lenses. The purchase of these tubes will peak your interest in macro-photography, as you can use them with most of your existing lenses. So far, I've shot both my Nikon 50mm 1.4 prime and my AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm 3.5-5.6G zoom @ 300mm on my D600, using mostly all three tubes at once. The end results are outstanding. These tubes are a great precursor for any further steps you might explore to get seriously into macro-photography.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional yet flexible I recently purchased this set with high hopes. However, theconstruction is of flimsy plastic. Other than this designflaw the tubes work very well as far as compatibility isconcerned. Problems Encountered: With all three extension rings and my Sigma 150/2.8 APOMACRO DG mounted one could plainly see the lens bowing downdue to the extension tubes flexing. True, I could use thetripod mount on the lens and I did but the lens was stillbowing down. And, this occurred with my Sigma and my D50!This set would be entirely unsuitable if not dangerous witha heavier body and heavier lens.If you were to just use a Nikkor 50/1.8 or 35/2 you would besafe as those lenses are light.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is it just mine, or is there a problem?? When I first used these tubes one at a time I thought they were fine -- autofocus worked as if there was no extension. However, when I tried two tubes together on a Nikon 300mm f4 camera D800, I started getting the fEE message showing that I had lost auto diaphragm. Nothing was moved on the lens so it had to be something in the tubers. I took off the one attached to the body, reattached and it started working again. The same error message happened again and the same solution worked, but if this happened at the wrong time it would be a serious problem. The tubes seem to have a little play at both the body and lens mounts. Never had this with the Nikon tubes, but they don't allow autofocus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They work well, are nicely built I got this set a couple weeks ago after months of itching to try macro. They work as intended, and deliver gorgeously sharp images depending on your technique (and lens). They're also well built and durable. I removed a star simply because I think the price point is a little ridiculous for what they are. Especially considering that auto-focus is very unnecessary in macro (it's very slow and any movement by the subject or the camera moves the focal plane). But if you want to delve into the world of macro photography without purchasing a dedicated macro lens, they are possibly the best extension tubes out there. All in all, I would recommend them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Choice for Extension Tubes These are reasonably high quality extension tubes allowing you to focus on objects that are close. They are particularly useful on larger focal length lenses (I am using a 55-200mm zoom) to get outstanding closeups. I made the mistake of ordering Nikon's PK13 which is not compatible with DSLR's - no electrical connection from lens to the body - and Nikon doesn't make extension tubes for modern lenses. I replaced it with the Vello extension tube set, but a quality issue prevented the ones I got from locking, so the camera didn't think there was a lens mounted. The Kenko extension tubes work perfectly, and are worth the extra money for the quality, and less expensive that a true Macro lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shots of snowflakes.... Used all three Kenko tubes on my D800 together with 60mm prime lens for my first attempt at shooting snowflakes. I wasn't satisfied with my first set of images; but, I discovered it wasn't my set up, it was the quality of the snowflakes. The last snow showers of Jonas consisted of the large, fluffy-type snowflakes which are the most photogenic. The image attached was from Winter Storm Jonas 2016. It was a hand-held shot at f13 ISO 2500 1/125. Can't wait to try this setup out on insects and flowers come Spring!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service for a good product Personal research brought up the Kenko Extension tubes again and again as a reliable product that can be used with various lenses. My order arrived in excellent time. I have tested the tubes in various settings over the past week. I find the Kenko extension tubes (individually, paired and all three together) are most useful with the kit lens set to manual. Using a tripod is a must to stablize the camera. The tubes fit tightly together and are sometimes a little difficult to separate. The metal contact rings are sturdy and attach easily to the camera body. I am pleased with the images I have captured so far and will definitely use the tubes regularly to explore close up photography!
