[SOLD] Hanimex M42 macro Extension Tubes, meter-coupled

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Hanimex M42 macro Extension Tubes, meter-coupled

Asking Price
US $10 SOLD PENDING PAYMENT!

Item Location
Washington, DC (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale are 2 vintage m42 extension tubes by Hanimex of Japan, one 30mm and one 20mm.

Unlike the cheapies you see on Ebay, these are meter-coupled, meaning that you can still use the automatic aperture setting on your m42 lenses for stop-down metering and DOF preview while you are taking your macro shots if your camera body supports those functions on M42. And beyond that, these have an all-around better build and machining quality than the crap you get from China these days.

The tubes themselves are in good shape with minor dings and brassing on the knurling and mounts. The tube threads are still in excellent condition and screw smoothly and easily onto my various m42 lenses and bodies.

Are they still available?
Will they work with Pentax K-7 and Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 or Sigma 30mm f.14?
Can I auto focus with them?
I have a friend living in the USA so you would be able to post to him.
thanks,
Patrick.

Hi Patrick

Answering Your questions:

These are m42 tubes (screw mount), meaning no auto focus is available.

I believe both of the lenses you refer to are K-mount autofocus lenses, meaning you would require an adapter at both ends to use these!

As far as auto focus goes, The only AF extension tubes for K mount that I know of are made by Kenko and are unfortunately rather rare and expensive. See this thread for details:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the update.
I'm looking to 'try out' macro a bit and am just looking at any cheaper options than a dedicated macro lens....
