I was looking for Ext. Tubes and found this Kenko set. 12mm, 20mm and 36mm tubes are included.

Now my question is: Are these real and is this a good deal?

Thanks :)

Yes, they work. The Kenko tubes are a good alternative to the very expensive Canon ones.


I own a buch of cool camera stuff...

Yes, but are they really that cheap? Isn't this a scam or something?

They're £100 new in the UK, so $100 on Ebay doesn't sound suspiciously cheap.

Not yet.

Will these support EF-s lenses?

Thanks

Only if they are the newer version. I would think that since they are depicted as the DG ones, they should. If they aren't, they are easily converted, because the only thing that requires doing is making the circular hole in the internal (plastic) baffle a little larger, so the rubber and plastic EF-S extension which extrudes beyond the mount will pass through the hole in the baffle. All you need is a sharp hobby knife to achieve this, and a steady hand of course.

Kind regards, Wim
