First time I used these extension tubes, the ring that attaches to the lens became stuck on my lens. The release button jammed and snapped. Fortunately I have a set of jewelers Phillips head screw drivers and was able to take apart the extension ring to remove the pin holding it to the lens. I can still use the extension tubes, but they no longer locks in place since I have removed the locking pin/release button. I would not purchase again.

So we have three (3) bellows that can be used individually or added together to get the correct macro focus. Simple, right? It would be, except this comes in five (5) pieces--to maintain certain automatic features--the front and back piece which have to be taken on and off every time you add or remove an extension. Who came up with that idea? The M42 manual extension set of three (3) pieces was both *manual* and *three pieces* (that you could just add or swap as you pleased), and worked fine with a K10D. It would have been nice if this manual set followed suit. The designer decided people would want auto aperture or just a plain lens signal to register through these, necessitating the two extra pieces. That's a lot of extra work to go through for a feature not needed for this type of photography. And maybe for novices or occasional fun that's a feature. When it comes to getting work done, this has one purpose only: move the lens further away from the film (sensor). Just keep in mind with this manual model you'll have to mess with the outer signal pieces to add an extension to the bellows.

Great if you want to damage your lens

This cheaply made extension tube set does not hold on or lock my Carl Zeiss 100mm makro planar lens onto the camera. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT or you will end up with a broken lens as it will fall off the camera when you try to manual focus!!!

The product does not come with instructions, but it is easy to figure out. The pieces fit together well and properly attach to the camera. Product is made of metal. It does work for me.

Shoddy construction

These tubes are poorly made. They dock badly with each other and with the lens so that the resulting lens-tube-camera has lots of play and cannot be relied upon to act as a rigid unit.

Very poor flimsy quality, poor fitting.  My $1000 lens got stuck, I had to look up the internet for a solution, luckily got it unstuck after 30 minutes.  Not recommended.  $20 wasted.

Works perfectly. Very nice finish. I don't see how they can do such high quality machining for that low a price!

Lots of fun

Still playing with this. Not the easiest thing to do, but a fun and inexpensive introduction to macro photography.

question

What is the thread diameter of the three central threaded tubes? is it 52mm? FYI: I just want to mate one or more of these screw-in tubes between a nikon slide copy stage with 52mm threads and the *front* of a macro lens with 52mm filter threads.
Asked by: Jeff
They are not standard size. Get the Vello EXT-NFM extension tubes. They are 60mm and you can attach these to the 52mm filter/lens with a step-down ring. I did this for the Nikon ES-1 Slide Copy Attachment.
