I found out you can buy cheap macro extension tube sets1, so naturally I did. I tried them on a variety of lenses2. Here are the results.

Then I threw them in a drawer, where most cheap photography accessories go to die. This was a fun experiment but it’s not my vibe.


  1. $15-20 for a Neewer set on Amazon.

  2. Strangely, the tubes fit on every lens I tried except the Mitakon 35mm f0.95. They just would not twist on to the mount. Some lenses, like the Sirui anamorphic, wouldn’t focus with the tubes on. I had decent luck with the TTArtisan 50mm f1.2 and the Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8.
