Multiple combinations available for multiple macro effects
Includes a 24 Month Manufacturer Warranty
A macro extension tube is a wonderful substitution to expensive macro lenses. It maintains the original optical quality while transforming the lens into a macro lens. It is far more desired then the add-on close-up lenses, which will alter the optical quality. The extension tube will work with all Sony NEX E-Mount cameras and lenses.
The camera mount coupling adapter and lens mount coupling adapter can be used independently of the extension tubes or you can add in the tubes for extreme Macro photography. Because no other optical components are added with this kit, the image preserves the original optical properties of the lens. This is an affordable and simple way to turn your existing lens into a MACRO LENS. This tube set includes a lens-coupling ring and a body-coupling ring; three extension tubes of various sizes are also included to build up to the desired magnification. Life size image can be achieved with this set up. See details specification at the table below. Specs are based on a 50mm f1.4 lens.
The extension ring set has no electrical contact, so you will have to set your camera in manual focusing and manual exposure, or aperture priority mode for metering.

The Fotodiox macro extension tubes for the Sony NEX series work OK, but there are a number of annoying issues:
1. The design joins a user-selected center tube length piece to the lens mount and the camera body mount pieces, via a simple screw-on thread. This does NOT lock the rotational position of the lens at the correct place, which isn;t too much of a problem UNLESS you use lenses that have manual focus ring tabs (like Leica, Voigtlander and others in the Leica mounts), as then the focus tab may be pointed stright up at the 12 o'clock position, or off to the right at the 3 o'clock position, or somewhere else, where you cannot easily move it with your finger as was intended by Leica.
It would have been FAR more preferable if Fotodiox provided dedicated tube lengths, designed each tube to be a one-piece system with the lens and body mounts, thus removing the issue of the screw-on threads that cause the lens to rotate at random positions when screwed together and...
The product works, but you need to know your camera and the suitable settings: - manual focus; - f/5 - f/11 - tripod - extra light (depends on the situation)
Works great on my Sony a6000. A lot less expensive than electronic versions. I use them for macro work. Just be sure to set the camera to enable "Release w/o Lens" in the menu. Since the tubes don't pass through any electronics, the camera won't sense any lens attached. Then set your aperture before you remove your lens from the body. (I just use a fixed 35 or 50mm). All aperture an focus need to be done manually. I've also found an inexpensive focus rail to be a great help.
