I'd guess they are likely to be, but you would get more definitive info here http://photomacrograph​y.net/forum/external link
eg some objectives are paired with the viewing lens to achieve their full optical properties plus some are apparently infinity objectives which seems to mean they work best used as an add on diopter rather than on the end of a hollow tube.

The infinite ones perform very poor on a bellows. They *need* a tube lens. If you prefer a setup with a bellows go for the finite ones!

Ah I thought it was the other way round, x10 it is then. How can you tell the difference from the links?

The seller is a little consise in his descriptions so I got the info from the images he provided. One of the lenses has a tube length marked on the barrel, 160 if I'm not mistaken, where as the other has the infinite symbol on it: ∞

Toby - you can use the infinite ones by sacrificing a lens cap - screwing it into the middle of it and then using it on tele lens say 100mm to 200mm long focused on infinity.

thanks for info, bought a finite lens (160, 4x) from someone else as this seller doesn't answer e mails.
