Thanks for the tip Len, and thanks for the sample images. Very interesting. I may not have elaborated clearly how I was thinking of using the extension tubes, I think it would be overboard to put them on my AF micro Nikkor, but i was wondering what the results would be like on any other lens, at some point I must get a set of extension tubes and try them out. The plant life here is well suited for close up photography, there are no trees here, no bushes, and the flowers that do bloom on the tundra for very short periods of time in the summer are small and they grow close to the ground as a means of staying out of the wind. Seen through the viewfinder of my camera with the micro Nikkor on its like I'm transported to another place where there are lots of colorful plants and vegetation. The camera is like a magic device that takes me to another place. Thanks for the info Len.
Cheers
Ron
