Your selection will depend on the mount of the Tokina. In your case it will be the F mount extension tubes. 3rd party extension tube makers like Kenko / Triplus are examples that will provide continuity of electronics from the lens to the camera, enabling functions like metering AF etc ( although the later is probably not that essential ) Nikon themselves do not have extension tubes that provides such electronic contacts.

Hi giantcanopy,

Sorry...er.....not really understand your explanation :embrass: but If I'm going to get extension tube for my lens (ohya, my camera is D90) I should look into the F-mount type?

Extension Tube is it referring to extension ring? :what:

Yup the extension tube makers manufacture according to the lens mount.
Yup Extension tubes are also referred to as extension rings.

There are single ones and also those in sets, such as this Kenko extension tube set



12, 20, 36mm



25mm

There is no wrong getting either. You can actually get better prices in our buy and sell / personal classifieds, and since there is no optics involved ( just a hollow tube ) there is not too much worry of getting a bad set as compared to used lenses.
