Extension Tubes for Nikon Z
« on: December 13, 2018, 19:48:14 »
Has anyone produced extension tubes for the Nikon 7, especially smaller ones? If so, I would appreciate any links there are as to where to get some.

Hi Michael, extension tubes is one reason for splitting my lens adapters.

Get a Nikon Z camera to Leica M lens adapter:
https://www.novoflex.de/en/products-637/lens-adapters//adapterfinder-products/nikon-z-mirrorless/adapter-leica-m-lenses-to-nikon-z-mount.html?rgerg=31

And this Leica M extension tube set:
https://www.novoflex.de/en/products-637/lens-adapters/extension-tube-set-leica-m.html

And then a Leica M camera to Nikon F, Canon FD, etc lens adapter to mount or extend almost any lens you want to use :)
Cheers,
Jan Anne Offereins

Apparently Fotodiox is making macro tubes for Z mount in 15 an 35 mm length.

I've ordered one also. And I have the Novoflex Leica Extension tube Set and have been using for some time with the Nikon "O" CRT versions.

What I am waiting for is the Nikon Z to sony E adapter so that I can use my Voigtlander 65mm Macro lens that I already have.

Received my copy of the Fotodiox Pro 15mm. It works well with my 50/1.8S and Sigma 105/1.4 A. The electronics works well and AF fully functional. Build quality is high. Even comes in a nice box made of bamboo, with plush lining  8)
Here's a shot (no crop) with the 50/1.8S @ f/3.5. Still more testing to be done.

Using the Fotodiox 15mm extension tube with the Z6 and 24-70mm f/4 at 70mm.
