Summary: The EX-25 extension tube is a substantially built attachment that allows me to get closer with any lens (though the focal distance can very considerably between lenses). Auto focus can be slow & sometimes unreliable. I let it get me close and then manually focus.
Summary: I purchased this Macro Extension to enhance my Macro capabilities. I have only used it a couple times as with most Macro shooting, the object needs to be fairly motionless, on my last huge trip it was quite windy every day. However, the eyes of the banana slug have never been larger.
Summary: I recently purchased an Olympus 35mm Macro lens for my E-30 camera. I love this lens. It is extremely sharp and surprisingly inexpensive for the quality of the optics. If I do my part the photos taken with it are clear and sharp.
Excerpt: I abosolutly love how close you can get with the extension tube. A small item will pretty much fill your camera screen. It's like exploring a different world. It's definitely great for casual photographers who don't want to spend the big bucks.
Excerpt: Great addition to my 50mm Macro lens. Creepy critters get even creepier with this very close focus. Good build, and solid fit. Auto-focus does not work in most instances. Recommend manual focus anyway for very close pictures.
