Well, I'm looking to upgrade to a broader-suiting set of lenses... My 28-80 will go back on the F60 if all goes well.

Now, I have two questions.

First, the 28-105...How well does it work with an M2 extension tube? When I use this extension tube I meter stopped-down for Macro... I'm used to it and like doing it that way so I don't want to hear why what I am doing isn't right...I only want to know if anyone has tried this lens with an M2 tube (or a PK tube)

Secondly, the 70-300 - how well does that work on an extension tube? On my 70-210, I can push the max-aperature lock and rotate the aperature ring. On my 28-80, I have to slide that little lever over when I want to manually actuate the aperature ring... How does the 70-300 fair both in this regard and optically?
