Using macro tubes on a K10D

What luck have you had with it? Do you have any problems seeing through the viewfinder? I've only used macro tubes on a film 120 camera, so I'm new to this. Any advice?

No problem at all, normally I use a macro lens but this was taken with my K10D, a full set of tubes on a Pentax F 50mm f.17.

WOW.

I am impressed.

I've been messing with the rings - using the full number, then three, and right now I'm having a little trouble getting them off the lens. How do you deal with the darkened view through the viewfinder?

My tubes have the A contacts so not a problem.
