I'd say it's for some aftermarket extension tubes. At least that's the way it looks to me.

I agree with Issac, the "For Nikon" over a Canon with the kit 18-55 lens is amusing.

people will always try to stop you doing the right thing if it is unconventional
Full frame and some primes.

Its German Ebay but it seems an Italian add. Anyway, it isn't even as cheap as the tubes I ordered on Ebay a week ago :P

Poor man's macro (but won a dedicated macro lens as well).

Hmmmm...

Es ist ein bißchen merkwürdig, daß den Artikel aus Deutschland kommt......die Beschreibung ist aber italienisch.

:D

Extension tubes with no electrical continuity?

Welcome to wide-open macro shooting.

That's Italian mate. Translated for you:

Welcome to our sales. We hope you our like poor quality product.

Small life lens ring for Canon or Nikon photograph. All operation is hand turned for maximum easyness of use.

Attach to light tube for big bug digitalness.

You might as well save yourself some money and mount the lens on the cardboard core of a roll of tape or something and use said tape to secure the lens to the camera.

hahahahaha ...

yes, seems like you translated it perfectly.

However, I'd suggest the 'pringle box macro extender' instead of the cheaper toilet roll version.

Best regards,
Andy

and still a lot of things to learn...
(so post processing examples on my images are welcome :D)
