About Kenko

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 father 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.

This KENKO AUTO EXTENSION TUBE SET contains two tubes of different length, a 10 mm and a 16 mm, which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification.

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 Canon, Nikon, Minolta and Micro 4/3 Mounts lenses given there is enough light to activate the cameras AF system properly.

Please Note;
1. When using extension tubes the lens will not focus to infinity. The focus range will be greatly limited to a very close focusing distance.
2. There is light fall off when using any extension tube, sometimes the e quivalent of 3 f-stops of light is lost when using multiple extension tubes together. This light lost can affect the camera's ability to auto focus. Manual focusing is recommended should the lens begin to "hunt" (not lock onto the subject).
3. Depending on available light and due to a very shallow depth of field manual focusing may be required if the lens AF will not lock focus.
4. Stacking is not possible with the Panasonic 45MM Macro and PZ 45-175MM lenses. However all Micro Four Thirds lenses work with either the 10mm or 16mm separately. If an error message is displayed when trying to use the tubes together on one of these lenses or any other please use one or the other extension tube separately.

Has two size options

I have to give it a five since I can't find anything wrong with it. It works well for macro photography on Olympus and Panasonic Lumix cameras that I have. Just remember there are other factors you need to control such as support, lighting and triggering the shutter (timer or remote).


Works Perfectly

I use this product specifically for adaptation of Non-Olympus lenses in closeups and in that context it performed perfectly

SAM G  This is a new product. Other tubes were 100% manual and had no elec connections for autofocus, autoaperture etc as these do. They work great.
