Kevin, Trung, Ronny and Peter, superb work in the last pages.

Long time since my last visit as lately I am not using tubes.

But, during my last trip I experimented the Kenko tubes with the older 135/3.5 QC. As I have CPU'd this lens, my forgotten Kenko tubes become very interesting due to the transmission of lens info to the body for metering, including the exif data.

And an almost wide open shot, focusing just tje head:

Amazing. Strange - on the last photo - that "nose" and antennas are sharp, but not the eyes.

Thanks.
The explanation is simple: the lens was almost wide open at f/4, and at close up range the DOF (depth of focus) is very thin. And as you can see in the second shot, the eyes appear to be a little bit in front of both antennae and nose.

Whoa! That last one is awesome Jose. That treatment may not satisfy purists but it is exactly the kind of close work I like with tubes, which invariably produce a lovely bokeh even when stopped down. This subject came up early in this thread. I respect the serious macro shooters who work for precision but that is not what moves me about doing close work. You just posted the perfect example of what I'm looking for when shooting with tubes. A fairly narrow focal plane crisply sharp fading into a smooth, delicious bokeh. Gorgeous! I'm a fan...

Rather mundane when compared with much of what is being posted, but I need to make at least an occasional contribution to a thread I initiated. This was taken with the 135 f/2.8 Q.C. with Nikon's AI conversion kit installed with a PK-13 mounted. I shot at f/4. I just bought a second copy of this same lens for $64.99. These classic Nikons are certainly among the best values for money on the planet. That they play so nicely with tubes only adds frosting to a pretty sweet cake.

I am still swooning after the first picture. I could never imagine extension tubes made such a difference.

Sweet Roberta! Love the raindrops. It reminds me of flowers I shot at Marin Art and Garden Center not too far from where I live. It was only after I'd viewed the images on my monitor that I appreciated the dew on the flower petals. These were shot with the 105 f/2.5 AI-s with a 20mm tube attached.

Well Curtis, it seems I've followed you over here now! I chose your very early post to respond to as I've just tried my first "tube" shot, using the lens you (and I) bought first.... the 105 f2.5 ais. There are no markings on the cheap Chinese tube I used, but it appears to be about 20mm as well. My Nikon PK-13 is in transit. I think I'm going to like experimenting with tubes!



Cheers and good light to all,
David

Lovely shot David. With the 105 and 135 soon arriving, either coupled with the 27.5mm PK-13, you'll have a great time. I love those focal lengths for tubes. I don't remember which tube I used but I shot this with the 135 f/2.8 AI. Mounting that smaller lens with tubes really made it sing.

Glad you're enjoying it. Remember, an extension tube allows ANY lens to get closer to its subject. You'll be amazed at how tubes change your experience with photography. You might want to make the investment. It can be quite small. In the meantime, enjoy the photos posted by folks shooting with every system. The only constant is the presence of one or more extension tubes...

Thanks Curtis. Did the post office give you any idea when I can expect delivery of the package..... (not that I'm anxious or anything)? I'm liking the 105 with the extension tube more than more shorter lenses... here's one with the 50mm f1.4 ais...

Cheers and good light,
David
