Great shots Alison. When you use extension tubes does the autofocus of the lens (assuming it was AF to begin with) still work? I was wondering because I was looking at some Kenko extension tubes for various camera and it noted that for Pentax the lens had to be used as a manual focus. I don't know if there are extension tubes that allow auto focus on the Pentax or not, (currently googling that) which prompted the question.

Thank you,

Tim

No, you have to focus manually which I always do anyway, I seldom use autofocus, too slow.

There are extension tubes that allow autofocus I think, I'm sure I've seen some on ebay before.
