I am wanting to buy a set of extension tubes for my D800. I've seen where the Kenko set (12mm, 20mm, 36mm) is a good set for $199. But, also on B&H Photo website it shows an alternative set of Vello extension tubes for $80. Here's the link: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/787224-REG/vello__auto_extension_tube_set.html/BI/4775/KBID/5289/

The ad says the Vello is fully compatible with AF and all electrical couplings of the lens/camera -- what is it I don't see here -- naturally there are no optics involved -- if the Vello is good for $80, why should I spend $199 for the Kenko? Any advice or insights would be appreciated. Color me confused!
