Wonderful Ronny... I just mentioned you on the MFNG thread where I posted ONE photo taken with the 135 f/2 AI-s with a 36mm Vivitar extension tube attached... one of your most used setups. I took these photos this morning at a flower stall in the natural foods grocery store near my home where I occasionally stop for breakfast and chat with the flower lady, Lisa who grew up in Norway. Since I'm Norwegian we have a bit to talk about though her interest in photography is probably the most important subject.




First and last shot at f/4, the middle at f/2. All were shot manual mode at 1/160th of a second with Auto ISO on.

Curved bill Thrasher babies in Arizona. The day i spotted the nest i had just a FD 100 macro lens on my Nex 7 . I returned the next day with the FD 300 F4 L , U-25 extension tube and Sony flash with a Sto-Fen diffuser. The chicks were staying in the bottom of the nest , out of view till moma came with the eats. I used the Sony focus peaking on the rim of the nest and moved the focus slightly to the estimated center of the nest. Cross posted from FD lens thread.

I just got a set of extension tubes this weekend and got to play with them. I had a lot of fun and it opens up even more possibilities for me to shoot things.

Here is one of my shots from this weekend.

Unfortunately, I manage to change the settings to jpg instead of raw at most of my pictures on stag beetle (ekoxe or Lucanus cervus)

Congratulations Ron on your new tubes. I felt the same way when I first gave them a try. There is no doubt that they open one up for a whole new way of appreciating photography. Have fun playing. As you see from others posting on this thread, it is possible to achieve remarkable results...

Ronny, you're producing amazing work with all your lenses. I think you must keep that 36mm Vivitar tube glued to your D700... Really beautiful.

Noob to toob questions...
First off, Page after page of outstanding shots people.
I hope to be able to get close to that level one day.

I have a Canon 5d Mkiii with a few lenses.
85mm prime
70-200L is ii
Nifty 50
and an old 24-105 from the film days.
Just got my Kenko tubes.

So! Do you bug shooters just find them and shoot them? I have dragon flys all over the place here, but can never get within 3 feet of them. Any tips on getting some good bug, bee, spider ect shots for a noob?

Thanks
Stryker

Stryker, the best way is a lot of care when approaching these bugs and for sure the choise of the lens+tubes with the larger possible working distance to the subject (from the tip of lens to the subject). Most of times for more accurate focusing and avoiding blur (when no flash is used) the use of a tripod is a great plus.



This is a real life "experiment" with my old Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 (Sonnar) + tubes:


Jumping spider with old Nikkor 105/2.5 P (Sonnar design) + tubes por labecoaves, no Flickr

D7100 + 36mm+20mm Kenko tubes + Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 F aiŽd & CPU'd + buitl in flash + diffuser, hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/60s, ~50% cropped. This tiny spider had less than 1cm of length.
The internet has some people stating this older design is a poorer performer at short distances than the Gauss' 105/2.5, but I think it did the job reasonably well with the tubes.

Very nice pictures! I just got a set of tubes myself and I will start playing. Does anyone know if they work better with wide angle lens or tele-photo is better?

Thanks
