I noticed in the new issue of Digital Photo Magazine (Feb 2013) that Pro-Optic has a product called a "Pro-Optic Macro Zoomer". This is essentially an extension tube 'set' all in one unit that can be zoomed in and out for a continuous range of magnification. It supports auto-focus and auto-exposure. Has anyone used this product or one like it? If so is it useful for you?

For my true macro/micro work I use a Raynox 250 mounted on my 105VR with the R1 Flash system and a 4-way macro focusing rail and am wondering is this zoomer will make things better/worse and or easier.

Any thoughts??
