And I might add...carbon fiber is salt water resistant vs aluminum when set in the shallow water.

I don't understand your question, please elaborate.

That happens sometimes if the image host is having problems, it has
nothing to do with the actual images...

Check back at a later time and they will probably display just fine...

BTW nice work, Zig...!

I like that last one the best...

Hi,
Thanks for the explanation. BTW, I noticed you have the Kenko auto extension tubes. I'm curious as to how you like them and with which lens/lenses you have used them.
I'm thinking about getting the set for some macro work.

Hi, Zig...

No, I've got the "Vivitar" auto ext tubes... These are manual tubes (no electrical
contacts) so only work with older non-cpu lenses in manual focus... I haven't
had a chance to try them out as yet as I just bought them and they are due for
delivery (probably) monday 6/11/12...

I will probably someday pick up a set of the modern Kenko tubes so I could use
them with cpu lenses... I believe they (Kenko) are very good tubes... I really
like my Kenko 1.4x TC...

Edit:
BTW, THK Photo Products, Inc. is the U.S. distributor for Tokina Co., Ltd. (Tokyo)
now part of Kenko Tokina Co, Ltd... They sell under the brand names Tokina, Hoya,
Kenko and SLIK... They also manufacture high end TV camera support equipment
under the name DAIWA...

Here's their home page with links to all their products/brands if you need more info
on the Kenko tubes...

http://www.thkphoto.com/

Hope something here is helpfull...
