"Extension Tubes for Nikon D5100"


Toluca Lake, US
          

I have a Nikon D5100 and am interested in buying extension tubes for casual macro photography (I am not interested in buying dedicated macro lenses).

I understand that the primary issue is that the tubes retain automatic diaphragm and meter coupling functions, so I can compose, focus and meter at a wide-open aperture.

I have been told that both Vello and Kenko make Nikon D5100-compatible extension tube sets that meet this criteria.

Does anyone have experience with either one of these brands or would you recommend another brand?

Thanks.

Mary
