These package of 3 extension tubes worked great from the first time I put one on. I tried the 36mm first. AF no problem on my Nikon 105 mm 2.8D. I then stacked the 20mm on top of the 36mm Wow what a close up. Then I added the 12mm and oh boy! Super close ups all metering & Af worked just fine. I am using them on my Nikon D 90
You need to be at F32 at least because you have so little depth of field with the extension tubes stacked. But that is what I wanted. You can't beat this price for a set of 3 tubes. The Nikon ones are manual only. The Kenko are a bit better quality but cost 2-1/2 times the price. So if you're like me & want to play around with ultra macro (I mean photographing the hairs on a sugar ant), then this setup works just fine. I feel I got my money's worth. I purchased a 12mm Kenko and that did not have the reach I wanted. I returned the Kenko because the Kenko tube was more $ than all three of the Zeikos ZE-CVAFN Auto Focus Macro Extension Tubes. If you're a hobbyist, or amature, then these tubes work extremely well.

I read the reviews for the Zeikos (and other economy) extension tube sets which were mostly favourable, but some people reported problems with the tubes being so tight they would not disengage or so loose the mount bent under the weight of the lens. I therefore first checked the assembly by attaching the tubes to themselves in various orders and had no problems. I then progressed to the camera (Nikon D3000) and lens (AF-S 55-200 mm 1:4-5.6 VR) and again had no problems disengaging or with bending - but the lens and camera are also made of light weght plastic. Exchanging tubes was a little more fiddly compared to the lens but not by much (3 second job instead of 2).

My main reason for buying these rings is to photograph butterflies where the 12 mm ring alone brings the closest focus distance of the above lens down from 3 ft to 1 ft when on the 200 mm FL setting. Auto focus worked fine. Even with all 3 tubes attached, autofocus generally worked especially if the subject was fairly two-dimensional but obviously the focus had to be within range, which is very limited for short focal length settings of the zoom (checked by switching to manual focus). For close-ups where object and image size are close, it would be sensible to use manual focus anyway and set it roughly 1/3 into the desired depth of field by moving the camera. So overall I am very satisfied with the product.

Let me say after reading other reviews online about this product, my expectations were low. Being that I'm on a budget and that I do very little macro photography I thought I would give them a shot for the price. First the negative. The plastic used for this product is not of "Nikon quality." (Not even close.) The contacts where the lens attaches also appear to be of a low quality. With that said, I feel that it is a great product for the price I paid for them. I have complete faith that they will support my Nikkor 105mm VR Micro lens. So much so, I'll sling it over my shoulder on the tripod just as I always have. (And that means something. I really love that glass.) I've had no connectivity issues as others have described. They simply work. There is no visible weatherproofing and I would not walk around on a rainy day with the tubes attached. With all that said. I think this is a great product for the price. If you want a high-grade weatherproofed product, I'd look somewhere else.

UPDATE: I've been using these extension tubes for over a year and they continue to work very well. With them I use a "kit" 18-55mm zoom that came with an old Nikon and the Neewer LED Ring Light. This has provided lots of great shots with almost only a small investment. Now, back to the original review, already in progress...

This set of three tubes is almost entirely plastic. It is well machined plastic with a quality feel to it but plastic none the less. In a way that is a benefit because they don't contribute much in the way of weight either on my camera or sitting in my camera bag. The only metal is the data connectors, lens release lever, and lens-facing mount. In particular, the camera-side mount is plastic. That is in a way another benefit since metal-to-metal mounts would need to be machined to tighter tolerances which would increase my cost.

The focusing and aperture controls work fine with my Nikon D200 and D90. The tube-to-camera fit is a big snug but quite workable. I don't notice any rattling or jiggling and as I use these exclusively when my camera is on a tripod I wouldn't expect to.

My experience with other Zeikos products is they provide good quality at a reasonable price. The extension tube set is no exception to that experience.

And now, for some extra credit...

In looking at reviews from people who have purchased macro equipment I think the following might be useful. It describes the most common options in terms so simple that even I can understand them.
There are two common choices for allowing a dSLR to focus "up close" and get a life size or larger image on your sensor.
