Steve, Kevin, Ram & David, very nice pictures.

Not a macro, but anyway I shoot with a 20mm tube + 400mm/5.6 K wide open.
Great Kiskadee portrait at 4.5m of distance:

D600 + Vivitar 20mm extension tube + Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K ED non-IF ai'd hand held, supported on the windowsill. ISO 320, f/5.6 at 1/125s. ~40% cropped. As the MFD of this old lens is 5m, I needed a tube to get focus at ~4.5m of the bird.

Heres several images with a Canon FDn IF 200 F2.8 lens + 25U ext. tube on a Sony NEX-7 . The third photo is a Steinhiel 135 F4.0 lens + Kenko 10mm M4/3s ext. tube on an Olympus OM-D.

I posted this yesterday on FM . Want to get close with longer focal length lenses ? , and also have more control over the image size and distance , then consider removing the glass elements from a Vivitar 2X macro focusing tele-converter. Their pretty cheap and KEH camera usuall has some in stock. House hold small tools will usually to the trick. If a last stubborn or non acessable element shows up- carefully break it out. EYE PROTUCTION A MUST , if you have to do this. The tube is like a metal minature bellows with 45MM to 60MM variable focusing.

Harry and David, superb flowers.

Last shots of my ex "almost pet" praying mantis; it has gone from my balcony's micro garden.

The exif is wrong, forgot to change lens CPU data, vivitar tube has no electric contacts.

I see Jose is showing us all how to do it... He is the man...

It is flower season in California so I guess I need to dust off the tubes and get to work. Here is one I grabbed about ten minutes ago. I'm shooting with a 135 f/2.8 Q.C AI manual focus lens mounted on a D700 with two Vivitar extension tubes attached, one at 12mm the other at 20mm. For the life of me I can't find the 36mm tube...


And a second one stopped down to f/4. Wide open with tubes is rather silly...

Thanks Kevin... I love getting close and tubes allow us to do so... I know you enjoy using them as well. Nice to have a place to share this kind of work.

Yes it is. I wish I had more tubes, all I have is an M2, and it is very temperamental compared to a PK13, even at the same length. Kind of wish I still had that Vivitar set, would love to use the 12mm with my 55/1.2.

An old experiment with real a life subject:

180/5.6 + tube (at least one crazy) combinations with my ex D3:


Nikkor 180mm f/5.6 ED ais close up comparisons por labecoaves, no Flickr



Comparison of magnifications when using the Nikkor 180/5.6 ED ais at MFD + some tubes. All shots with D3 at ISO 200 + tripod + remote shutter.

Top: no tube, f/2.8 at 1/60s; magnification 0.133x; distance subject to sensor - 1,75m.
2nd: 12mm Vivitar, f/2,8 at 1/80s; magnification ~0.2x; distance 1,3m.
3rd: PN-11 (52.5mm), f/5.6 at 1/10s; magnification ~0.42x; distance 86cm.
Bottom: 120.5mm (all Vivitar set 12+20+36mm + PN11); f/11 at 1/2s magnification ~0.8x; distance 73cm.

A Peony has really started to flower in earnest and the colour is sumptuous .....

Great to have you stop by Harry and nice to know you're still picking up your camera gear from time to time. You're definitely a creative soul, playing with Tamron converters as you describe. There are so many ways to use all this gear and it is always nice to get closer to our subject. I just put my set of Vivitar tubes in the glovebox of my car, so hopefully I can make a few contributions to this thread...

Be well Harry.

As I have shot these pix with toobs - they should be here .....

Although I only used one tube with the Nikon 105mm f2.5 and a PN-11 giving 1:1 apparently !!

Hope these are OK.

They're awesome Steve. And don't forget you can mount that tube on any of the lenses and even if you don't get 1:1 you'll get closer to the subject AND get great results as you do above. Have fun!
