I'm glad this thread is making a comeback. I actually haven't used mine in nearly a year, but just having them in my bag is good. I'm one of the few who are vocally opposed to the dedicated-macro-lens phenomenon for those who are simply casual macro photographers. Using tubes saves cost and weight in your bag and increases functionality on each lens you own!

I think i might get them!

How does the AF focus range change with 1-3 of them?

I know the minimum focus distance becomes shorter and i've heard that you loose focus at infinity but how much of the long end do you lose?

What's the furthest you can focus or does it vary with each lens?

Film: Voigtlander Bessa R3M | Nokton 40 f/1.4 SC

I'll do some measured tests for you tonight or tomorrow. I think it might depend on the lens you're using though.

Nice. I'm thinking about these as a supplement to my Sigma 17-70 OS Macro (which isn't a true macro, only goes to 1:2.7)
