    Does anyone have experience using the extension tubes on the Zeiss 50mm Tuit (Fuji native mount) lens?

    If so, please share your experience (or better still, images) with this combination.

    Does it work with 11 and 16? Both together?

    Since the lens already goes to 1:1, presumably one can get greater magnification till you run out of working distance. But I'm only speculating...I would love to hear from anyone with experience combining them.

    No one has tried this?

    So...it works. Part of the back of a US $10 bill. The bill is a bit worn.

    This is with an alternative tube made by Meike.

    Oh, and in answer to the OP's question, it worked with the 10mm, the 16 mm and both together (26mm). And presumably more would be possible.

    The Fuji tubes are 11mm and 16mm, so they should work the same (plus 1mm).

    Ok, I'm done talking to myself (and whoever needs this information in the future). ;)
