A little time back , i posted, does anyone know if the Kenko extension tubes for M4/3s are plastic or metal ? Can you now answer that ? Also how close with the 75MM for (at) MFD ?
Harry they have a combination of metal and some kind of composite material. The outer black appears to be metal, it has metal mounts, it is the central internal tube which is the composite plastic material. They feel strong and for the small size, solid, much like the OM-D itself. They are quality , not sure if it is because they are more compact, but they feel more solid than my EOS 35mm Kenko tubes.
With both tubes the MFD for 75mm f1.8 measured 19cm or 7 1/2 inches a little under the span of my hand, with a quick test.
Bobby if I had the 60macro I doubt if i would have got the tubes. You get a 1:1 I don't know what the magnification the tubes give.
Of course as you say you can have the use of f1.8 over f2.8 using the tubes with the prime lenses.
