    So, they appear to have the same function (allowing reductions when printing), but why 2 items that do the same thing? I see that the Dutub is adjustable in length while the femotub is fixed in length.

    Anyone have any insight into this? Maybe the Dutub replaced the Femotub at some point? Or do they both serve a good, independent purpose?

    And, what is the difference between a Dutub and a Dutub II?

    No one knows about these? I guess I'm the expert now?

    That "same size" applies to usage with a 150mm lens.

    Thanks! I guess that makes sense.
