I'm interested in that set-up for convenience with a 14-45.
 
How well does that work? Does it retain the autofocus, auto stop-down and IS?
 
With the lens fully extended to 42/45mm what is the working distance to the body/lens?
 
Do you find it awkward to use with the zoom lens and/or focus by wire?
 
I'm used to the adapted slr primes with the dead tubes. I think I could get roughly the same magnification with the 10mm and 16mm on the 14-45 as I can get with 13mm and 20mm on the 50mm.
 
Are those the Fotga or Meike ? Plastic, metal? Any dislikes or quirks?

I hope the extension tubes work ok. I just found a set at Amazon for $29 inc. USPS and ordered them. They look just like yours and say Skyblue on them. The last set available at that price.
 
Same p/n MK-P-AF3B Meike.
