Those look much better than mine, oh well, until I am rich, I will put up with mine! lol1

It does say in the listing on mine that there are a total of 8 combinations, well, I can only work out four if the number 1 doesn't detach from the coupler but can still only make 7 if it does, can't work out 8 at all! lol!

Mine LOOK the same as those ones but of course, they could be different I guess.

yes for some reason the forum attached the ) to the link, my bad, didnt doublecheck.

Mine are the same as yours, body & lens coupling ring and seperate tubes to screw in between.

Now, since the hot water didnt work, you could try 2 things:

-put them in the freezer (same thing as the hot water, but the other way around, they should shrink a little)

-Find a really strong guy to unscrew them for you, make sure he's twisting the right way

This could be a good sign too you know, it's a sign that theyre new and havent been unscrewed ever before

LOL, had thought of both those two things. I will try the freezer method later, I already tried the strong man method but he couldn't do it either. Oh well! lol!

Damn, just had a reply from the seller and he says yes they are meant to be stuck firmly like that. Bummer, guess I will be looking out for some tubes again at some point.

Ok, call me dumb but why do you have to hit the AE-L button? Sorry to sound dumb.
