eBay macro tubes

A few words regarding these tubes... you can find on eBay two kinds of the cheap tubes, the regular ones and the "AF macro tubes". The difference between those two is that AF macro tubes have some contacts that allow the focus points to blink if the shutter is half pressed and the point is really in focus.
These tubes no not allow the lens to "talk" with the body at all - this is written on eBay pages of course. What cannot be seen clearly on ebay is a detailed photo of the tubes with the part where the contacts are.
Below some more detailed images, click on them for higher resolution:

First of it's kind


My first macro shoot with a DSLR. Used those macro tubes you can get from eBay which are supposed to offer AF confirm - yes, they do offer AF confirm, but, well... you still have to focus manually, only the red dot in the viewfinder will blink if you get that point, if the light on the subject is enough.
