Hello Nikonians,

My endeavour is to crack macro work so apart from dedicating more time to it I have purchased the Kenko DG tube set to start me off...

I have noticed that when mounting my 105mm f2.8 micro lens, (Nikkor), there is a fair amount of slopiness causing the lens to droop downwards.
This is a little dissapointing as the 105mm is not very heavy?

I read that some of you use up to 500mm lenses with them !?

By holding the lens 'up' and letting it 'droop' I can't seem to see if there is any effect on focus.
Do you think there will be?
All else seems to work ok, focus & metering...

The tubes will be primarily used at home on focusing rails not in the field, so to speak.

For their price I can't complain too much. I just don't want to be working on some stacking only to find my lens dropping off!

Your opinions would be comforting...?
