Hi there, ok got my first macro lens and started shooting some shots. Its a Sigma 105mm macro. However, I still find I cannot get the type of great magnified pictures of eg the eye pigment of an insect, etc etc.

I have read about the extension tubes and how they really give you great closeups. I use a D70 with the macro lens.

Anyone has a recommendation on the type of extension tube I should get :) I am not quite sure about these tubes :)

Thanks

U can get the Triplus extension tubes...its a set of 3 tubes 12mm, 20mm and 36mm. Cost abt $190. Theres also the Uniplus 25mm single extension tube, cost around $80 I think. Got my Triplus set from fellow CSer (set was bought from John 3:16 at Funan).

Thanks scandisk, megaweb and verywierd :)

Triplus, what the difference between the different focal lengths - I have a Sigma 105mm - can I use any of the triplus 12mm, 20mm and 36mm?
