You can mount the tubes between lens and body of the camera to get your choice of macro ranges. There are a total of eight combinations.
Please note the following: * During macro shooting, you should DEFINITELY always focus manually. We also recommend a tripod and macro slide in order to find the focus point can be lighter and finer. We also recommend lots of light. If you can combine all three rings together, the AF may not work correctly anymore. For some lenses, the AF does not work. However, in any case, all relevant data is transmitted to the camera such as aperture, Exif data, required exposure values, etc.
Machined from copper: All Extension Tubes are machined from copper, gives you durable and steady experience even with heavy telephoto.

I first received these and thought I'd gotten a great deal. They seem well build, strong, fit properly and 1/2 the price of the name brand tubes.
But... the connections (the whole reason for buying them right?)... fail to keep their connection. The only way to keep the connections full contacted between each other when stacked is to physically hold the tubes in a constant "turn".
So to make this clear.. all three tubes work fine if they are attached directly to the camera alone. But when stacked on each other, they do not keep the connection with the camera. The connection jumps "on/off/on" back and forth. in other words the tubes are not tight enough with each other.
So I returned my first purchase and figured it must be a fluke and that a new set would be fine. But no,,, exact same issue.
I recently received this AF macro extension tube set and I am very pleased with the finish of the set, very much like Nikon's lenses.Of course, my first concern was would it attach smoothly without damage to lens or camera, and would it release properly. Yes and yes. The electrical contacts and f-mount engage properly and are finished nicely. The units lock in place correctly and the release pins work with no issue. It does allow both types of autofocus to work, camera driven (like a 50mm D type lens) and lens mounted drives (like the silent wave or similar), but lenses did not lock focus easily. I have much better luck with manual focus. (you will probably find moving the camera back and forth or a focusing rail will be easiest) I successfully mounted Nikon D and G type lenses, as well as Tamron lenses. The item description could use some work, it is a copper mount version, not copper "Mountain". It is not solid metal, but has copper mounts, and feels like an internal metal...
Was hoping for Nikon quality on a Chinese budget. I am a little afraid to use them. They don't feel quite right when they mount. I am afraid of damaging the camera or lens. The gold plated contacts are what concern me. They have too much friction compared to the feel that i get when I mount Nikon on Nikon.
