Fotodiox any know this name?

I found a set of extension tubes on the net and this was the name. They do not have the A contacts; however, to me that does not matter, as I will be shooting manual anyway. I just wondered if anyone knows the name. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, they should be fine. I have a Fotodiox K-mount lens adapter for my Pentax Q. If the price is right, go for it.

Thanks Gibby. I'll get them, as the price is excellent, under $20.

I have used several of them in the past on my K-5 and K-30 without any issue at all.

If you are talking about this one: Amazon.com: Fotodiox Pentax K Macro Extension Tube Kit for Pentax K Cameras, Extreme Close-ups: Camera & Photo
I actually bought it a month ago for U$D9,54 (now at 14U$D, why!?) You get what you pay for... They work but nothing fancy. Only advice is to keep them in a siploc bag so dust doesn´t get inside the extension tube... Later it goes to your mirror box, sensor, lens rear element.

I've purchased a few Fotodiox parts (converters and adaptors). I typically find them on ebay. I believe they are located in the mid-west. Personally, I have not had a bad experience with them and as a supplier of third party gear, they seem to have a wide variety things. In fact, after a few purchases, I now go to them directly if I want something like a converter.

+1 on that. Quality is not super great but I've never thought it was bad either, especially at the prices. I usually go there first if I need something odd.

I have 2 Fotodiox adapters for my NEX, and 5 others from various other manufacturers. They aren't my favorite adapters, the lenses rotate a bit axially, but they work. I much prefer Fotga or Pixco. .

Thanks for the comments. Now it seems I need something else for now and can buy those at a later date.

Since I could get them for such a low price $5.35, I took the plunge and ordered them last night.

I bought a pretty good pinch lens cap, and bayonet body cap, from them.

I looked at more of what they have. Looks like there are a few things I could buy.

I have a question about mine. Got them in Friday and looking at others, they are marked with a mm on each one, mine, however only have 1, 2, 3 on them. Looking at others they are marked 7mm, 14mm, and 28mm. Why are mine marked with only single numbers and no mms?
