I figured not to try my set of old extension tubes on 2.0 at f4 (yep, still have not changed the aperture ring)...

C&C always welcome!

Nice shots. I have 72mm of extention tubes and here is my problem. Even when I break them down into small units I still cant grab onto them, the distance is to great for my hands. Any suggestions?

like these very much - the warmth of #1 is lovely but overall #3 works the best for me for its composition & great sweet spot.

Thank you both for the comments!

Trex - somehow, I'm finding that I feel more comfortable holding and bending LB as I would normally hold any other lens, under the barrel. With LB though, I place the flange between 2nd and 3rd digits, and use these two fingers to push the flange and bend it, so even with extension tubes, there is plenty of reach for me that way.

Regards,
D

Thanks, I guess I will have to practice more or as I am just thinking about it, I could hold down close to LB and have the remote trigger in my hand as well.
