On most lenses, the manufacturers provide a focusing mechanism that extends only a few millimetres, partly to keep down costs and partly to restrict the lens to extensions for which its optics are optimised. To provide additional extension, one or more extension tubes can be added between the camera and the lens, to make the lens focus at closer distances and therefore produce higher magnification.
This brand new Macro Extension Tube Set for Sony NEX camera includes 3 extension tubes - 9mm, 16mm, 30mm adapters and a male & female adapter. You may mount the tubes between lens and camera body to get your choice of macro ranges. There are totally 8 combinations.
