    * Anyway, the best price I can get is $190 (TCW) and $200 (OP) cash payment include GST...

    Hi... I am Canon user, but also use Kenko Extension tube (36mm, 20mm and 12mm).. I have tried before coupled it with my tamron 17-50mm, but when the lens extend to 50mm (for biggest magnification), it would be too long and surely will touch the subject before it can focus.

    I can say that the best set up is with 50mm lens (I am using 50mm f1.8). the set up is really nice and great.. could capture lots of details and easy to focus, most of the time I only coupled it with the 36mm, but for tiny bugs, I can stack all three and no problem with it)

    you can see some of my shoot on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/marboed...7622494587242/

    this is my latest captures using the setup.

    Hello.
    I have just purchased a 50mm f1.8D nikkor lens and am having problems getting it to work with a set of Kenco DG extension tubes on my Nikkon D5000 body. The LCD comes up with a message saying "lock lens aperture ring at minimum aperture", despite the fact that it is already locked in this way. The camera does not record ant photos when I depress the shutter. Any ideas??

    hmm... are you getting an fEE error? My 25mm tube has been giving that problem recently, prolly loose CPU contacts. A little twist to push the contacts tight solves it though =P

    Thanks for your speedy reply.
    Yes I am getting a fEE message. I have just tried a twist to no avail. (the coupling is pretty tight). Any other suggestions?

    yipe*

    Uhh, as a last resort give the CPU contacts a lil' wipe, just in case they're soiled. Otherwise, guess you have to send it for servicing


    There's a fEE error for all yr lenses right?
