Thread: Extension Tube with Telezoom

  1. #1

    Default Extension Tube with Telezoom

    What is the effect of using a extension tube with a telezoom? (e.g. 18-200 VR). Will this give the same effect as a teleconvertor? I am keen to get one for my D80 before I get the macro lens.

    Nope.. an extension tube is NOT a TC. pls dun make this mistake.

    What the extension tube do is to give you a closer focusing distance (this may cause you to not get infinite focusing distance)
