    Not really bright enough

    I have been using the MAL-1 arm light with the Olympus 60mm F2.8 Macro lens mounted on an Olympus OMD-EM5 camera. My photos have been a combination of indoor macro shots with the camera firmly mounted on a focus rail, and a few hand held shots outdoors in deep shade using the arm light as the primary illumination.Here are a few observations.This is a great idea that should have been executed much better. The LED lamps are just not bright enough to be very useful, especially when shooting hand held. With the lights only about 2 inches from the subject and the LED set to the HIGH setting, shutter speed at F/8 and ISO 200 is still a slow 1/40 of a second. That's OK when tripod mounted, but even with the excellent image stabilization of the OMD-EM5 it's just not good enough to obtain sharp closeup photos with my shaky hands. Only one of my handheld shots was sharp enough to save. Also, the 60mm macro lens seems to hunt excessively when set to auto focus.

    It works well for its intended purpose

    It's not a 100mm 2.8 L macro lens, but then it didn't cost $1000 either. I bought this to add to a travel camera kit I was putting together. Attached to an Olympus 45mm 1.8 lens I am able to get noticeably closer focus, and surprisingly it turns pretty decent images. If you are planning to shoot a lot of true macro then you probably should pony up the money, and buy a dedicated macro lens. If you simply need the ability to get closer for the odd occasional "macro-ish" shot should do quite nicely.Pros:can render reasonably sharp close up imagesInexpensive when compared to the cost of a true macro lensdoesn't take up quite as much room in a camera bag as true macro lensCons:not as good as a true macro lensthe bayonet attachment is a bit funky (at least when attached to the Oly 45mm 1.8 lens)construction is definitely on the plasticky side (if you are working on a super light weight kit, this might be a plus)... 5/5 cpl366 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 3/5 Austin_Canon7d_shooter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Olympus MCON-P01 Macro Converter (Silver) (Electronics) It sort of works. I mean, if you are using Zuiko 14-42mm lens, you won't see vast improvement after you attach the Macro converter. If you really love macro, super close-up photography, you will need to invest in the good macro lens.

    Super lightweight & function well

    Although the product image doesn't show it, the set I received (purchased from "New Harbor") have "FOTGA" preceding the "Extension Tube DG" label. So these seem to be the same set selling elsewhere for a higher price.Construction is super lightweight (stacked: 1.8oz or 52g), which matches up well with the m4/3 system. Yet the construction seems very good; the fit seems just right on both attached camera & lens as well as each other when stacked. Mounts seem to be made of aluminum. The flat electrical contacts (rear) are a bit smaller width than corresponding lens counterparts' flat contacts, but all electronic functions such as lens EXIF & exposure & auto-focus pass through fine (though you'll likely prefer to manual-focus at macro distance & the very narrow focus range using tubes - prone to AF hunting.) The interiors of the tubes are ribbed, which helps to dampen reflections.This set doesn't come with a front or rear cap, so you may consider obtaining a... 5/5 R.

    Best price - decent quality, but do you really need it?

    That "DG Fotga" brand is being sold by few resellers. This was the best price available (just slightly higher than plastic ones).Build quality is decent. Firm enough seating - but not so firm that you don't have to fight with it. No sagging or flexing.I use it with my Olympus 12-50mm lens (which already has built-in macro mode) on a OM-D E-M5 body. With macro mode of that lens; I can already shoot macro at about 2 inches distance. With both of these tubes attached; I can get close another inch or so to subject. So from 2 inches down to 1 inch; not much of a gain for me. But again; I'm just experimenting with it. That one inch might mean a lot to you.On 17mm f2.8 lens; slightly better distance gain on focusing.On 40-150mm tele lens; it allows you to approach your subject quite a lot (few inches).An important reminder (for those who didn't know); such extension tubes do not have any use other than macro shooting.

While I assume a $1000+ lens may have delivered slightly better results, this extension worked perfectly. The contacts on the tubes transfer all the lens to camera functions. retaining full camera functionality. I purchased it for my Panasonic Lumix DMC G6. You absolutely MUST use a tripod when using this product. Even manually firing the shutter caused some blur. However this is not a fault of the product, just the nature of shooting something so close. I overcame the shutter blur issue using the smartphone remote control. This product is an excellent value, delivering equally excellent results. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 7, 2014

    Great Lens at a Great Price

    0 4/5 J. Lyons (Tallahassee, FL) - See all my reviews, January 9, 2007

    Excellent All Around Lens

    I've owned this lens for about a year and a half and originally I purchased it strictly for macro (and it's cheaper than the 50 f/2). I've learned that this lens does it all. Portraits, landscapes, street shooting, in addition to macro work. It's a 1:1 lens so you can get really close and pick out amazing details. It's as small as it looks and is quite compact. it fits nicely on the E-300 with or without the grip. One vice is that you will have to move in closer to a subject at times due to it's short focal length. For jittery critters the 50 f/2 or Sigma's 105 f/2.8 and 150 f/2.8 macro lenses may be better options. Since I do a lot of studio/indoor shoots and all of these lenses are too long for my needs. Another thing to note (and this is true of all macro lenses) is that it's not the best for capturing fast moving subjects. It can be done with practice, but results would be easier to come by using a non-macro lens. If you already own the 50 f/2 keep it, but if you're... 5/5 Jesse W.

    Macro Extension Tube Ring for M42 42mm Screw Mount

    0 5/5 John Guarino (Albuquerque) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) All three extension tubes fit all my old lenses from my Pentax Spotmatic. Two Super-Takomar and one Rikenon. And all the tubes fit the fotodiox M42-FX adapter to use on my fuji X-T1. I tested each tube individually and all three together. I tested against a back lit leaf. The inner surface of the tubes are matte enough not to be excessively reflective. There wasn't a problem with excessive flare.I purchased mine through a third party seller here at amazon, Crazy Cart. The product that they are selling appears to be quite good. I've read about problems with extension tubes creating ghost images from the reflectivity. Granted, I've only tested them once so far, but against very strong back lighting from the sun through leaves, these seem good. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 13, 2014

The only bad part is that sometimes, the top of the lens is not where it should be. I may be on the side. Also the black paint can be scrapped off.

    Does the trick, but seek cheaper sources for the same set

    As stated, this tube set does the trick. I tried it with my EF mount prime lens. I tried most all combinations and each one had its own potential use. Every combination gave a range of focal points when tuning manual focus. However, extensions seem to greatly reduce the depth-of-field. Keep this in mind if you intend to use them for any subject with depth over an inch.The design overall seems solid and durable, but it can use some improvement. A few problems with this set did reveal themselves.First, the threads between the adapters and extensions are very small and difficult to start. Once started, it seems to take too many full turns before becoming snug. Larger threads would help both of these problems.Second, the latch for the included lens mount adapter was loose and poorly shaped. It jiggles around very easily. And, it looks like more of a finger-tightening screw than a sliding latch. It took me a while to figure out what it was for.
