The Extension Tube is 44mm and needs a No3 Lens Board.

Useful, if like me, you are running out of Bellows

I don't find it a problem focusing mine

I'm very pleased with mine - although its quite a jump from 240mm

Good luck with yours


Thanks Martin. If I start to use the lens for closer subjects in the future, I suppose I would get the extension tube, otherwise this is going to be a tight compression landscape lens 99% of the time.

I am glad to hear it is quite a jump from a 240, this is exactly what I am looking for.

I can't wait to try it out on tight ski area Winter landscapes, it should be brilliant for that and is what the commissioned job is that made my mind up to finally go ahead and buy it.
