Customer Reviews

Worked well I was quite happy with my quick test on an ant using the full set with my 50mm macro lens. I am wanting to get ones that auto focus to help me get close. I could then make minor adjustments to get the focus where i want.They are just hollow tubes, but seem sturdy enough. I dont know that i would hang a long lens off then and put the camera on a tripod using the camera base to secure it. Though i would not do that with my 1.4TC either.They did as they were designed, so if you are SURE you dont want ones that autofocus then I would recommend these.I am trying to justify autofocus ones, espcially since i already bought these and RARELY do macro shots.Doing it all over, I would get autofocus ones and bite the bullet on the cost. You can always disable AF and do it manually. 4Vaseline Inside Of These On the inside of the rings there is a substance that is the consistency of Vaseline. I took pics of it with my phone and put them with this. These were returned immediately. 1Works fine when used carefully As noted elsewhere the threads on this thing are a bit on the hard to use side, but seem to work fine on the example I obtained. And also if you don't know how to use manual focus and exposure you are OOL and probably shouldn't be operating a real camera anyway.What isn't mentioned in the product description is that this set comprises two rings with NIkon lens bayonet mounts, one male and one female, and a set of different length tubes with the above mentioned hard-to-operate threads. You can screw the male to the female, as it were, for the shortest extension -- the only option I have used -- which enables a lens to subject distance of about 4.5" with a 50mm prime lens and about a 3" wide field of view on my 1/2-frame D200. You can add the other tubes for closer work. It used to be the practice to reverse the lens when working closer than 1:1, but you can't do that with this set so it may not work so well with longer tubes.In general, bang-for-buck wise, this is a fine option for occasional macro work. 4Great product for what it is, don't expect more I'm going to rate this a 4 star because it does exactly what it is meant to do, however does suffer minor problems. Obviously this is just an extension tube and does not have the CPU contacts for modern lenses. That means if you have an autofocus lens, It will not be able to autofocus or meter, you'll also have no control over your aperture (unless your lens has manual aperture ring). With this attached to my 50mm 1.8 AI lens it gives me an incredible amount of zoom. I am able to get the subject just centimeters away from the lens itself. Overall, it does exactly what it needs to do.Cons: This tube is divided into three separate sections of varying lengths, the way you connect them is just through normal threading. This makes it extremely easy to work, however if you screw it on a little TOO tight, you'll be unable to unscrew it without tools. I am talking about if you are screwing the 3 pieces onto itself.It fits Extremely well on the camera, and comes off just as easily as a regular lens. However the connection on the lens is a little finicky, it'll come off, you just have to push the release knob towards the camera in order to remove. Sometimes it may be on too tight and you'll have to twist the lens back and forth about 1mm in order to be able to work the locking screw.Anyways, if you're interested in trying out macro, you cannot go wrong with these tubes. If you want TTL flash/metering, you're going to need the auto extension tubes.Great buy none the less. 4Just the thing! I'm new to Macro photography, and didn't want to invest a lot of money in it until I was sure I would keep doing it. The Zykkor Tube Macro Extension Tube Set is perfect and works fine. I read all the Reviews on the Product and it seemed that most of the problems were folks not understanding how to use the Tubes. The 'Release Knob' simply slides up/down, depending on how you are holding it. The threads are very fine and 'Common Sense' must be used when screwing them together. You must be sure the Tubes are square to each other, and if you feel it bind up, stop! Unscrew it, make sure the threads are OK, and try again. Don't force them or you'll ruin the threads. The Tubes are well made and work fine. Macro Photography is probably best done in Manual Mode so you have full control of everything. Practice attaching and unattaching the tubes to the camera and Lens to get used to doing before going out on your first shoot with them. Enjoy! Great Buy! 5Great way to get good macro photos without spending much I bought this product to try to get better macro photos, without shelling out more money for a dedicated macro lens. I'd have to say, they do what I need them to, although it's a pain not to have auto-aperture. I solved this problem by wedging a little piece of wood into place to hold the lens aperture lever open. So that works, though it would be nice to have a way to change aperture without needing to remove the lens. As far as construction, they are fairly well built, with all metal construction. The pieces thread smoothly together, and the lens/body adapters also snap firmly onto the lens/body (they need to be mounted a certain way, or they will not lock on). Overall, I would recommend them to a friend, especially for this price. 4This is a good product... works great for the money. Initially, I ordered Zeikos ZE-CVAFN Auto Focus Macro Extension Tubes for Nikon. That was a big mistake (I almost couldn't separate it from the camera body. I ordered Zykkor Macro Extension Tube Set for Nikon SLR Film and Digital Cameras as a replacement. It works great for what I wanted it for - macro photography without having to pay lots of cash for a macro lens. With these tubes you have to use the manual setting on your camera.I'm using an older AF-Nikkor 35-70mm f3.3 lens. It has manual aperture capability. There is no provision obviously for shutter speed, you'll have to set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. I have absolutely no problem interchanging the tubes and connecting the lens and camera. Each tube segment is threaded. Each tube segment can be screwed together or used separately. One drawback is that there is no labeling for the size of the segment, they are just labeled 1,2,3...Overall I'm pleased with these tubes. I have no concern about them damaging my lens or camera. They are definitely worth the money and cost a lot less then the original set of tubes I ordered. 5Won't mount without excessive (damaging?) force The one I received would not mount on my D7000 without excessive force, to the point that I thought I may damage the body of my camera. I bought a different brand of the same product, and it mounted perfectly (just like all of my lenses). I doubt they're all like this, but mine was basically useless.For anyone curious how this works with lenses that do not have a manual aperture ring, the unit I received did not have anything to press against the aperture arm on the lens, and thus the lense was fully stopped down (ie, smallest aperture, such as f22). However, you do get a lot of bokeh (depth of field) even though the aperture is so small. In fact, I think I prefer this as to a tube that would leave the lens wide open because at that point, the depth of field is so small that it's nearly unusable.In short, a decent product that was hindered by bad manufacturing. 2For the money... awesome Fantastic little gizmo for cheap macro. For the price, I was worried that I was going to get something that was going to be difficult to attach/detach from my camera. That was not the case. Both camera mount and lens mount surfaces work great. When mounting it on the camera, it snaps in, just as you'd expect when attaching a lens. Same for the lens mount... snaps right in. And in both cases, easily comes off. It's all metal... no plastic anywhere.Tried all three elements stacked with a 50mm 1.8. Before, with just the lens, the closest you could get with a focused subject was about 1.5 feet. With the tubes, you can get within a couple of inches. Great stuff for just 10 bucks. 5Great piece of gear for the price Fits perfectly on my camera and lenses. They're no thrills extensions for your camera. I like them because they're sturdy and inexpensive so if I lose one I'm not out $30. Heck I can just buy a new set for a few bucks and have spares. You definitely get your moneys worth here and then some. I'd recommend them for any hobby photographer. Professionals might not be as hyped on them. They have certain signs that you'd notice like material thickness and so on. However you get way more than you pay for with them and that's just a good value. 5
