    Jeff: I already did, have both now.

    Pumalite: Thanks for your input. Still wondering if ext tubes are the same thing as ext rings.

    Same thing. Extension tubes = extension rings.

    To clarify further, close-up lenses and extension tubes are not the same thing. Close-up lenses are used to extend a lens' minimum focus for, say, a tighter head shot or detail shot while still hand-holding the camera. Extension tubes are used for macro work, require exposure compensation, and often don't have an auto diaphragm. And there's no image degradation if you use a quality brand close-up lens from B+W, Tiffin or Hoya.
