    Are the vello deluxe extension tubes worth the extra $30 over the econo version?

    Most extension tubes I've seen will not give you the electronic contacts to maintain the AF operation. I have the Kenko tubes and they do include the electrical connections. While they cost a bit more than $30, using them with AF is a real advantage. I'd advise you to check out the Kenko product and consider spending a bit more to get something you will be happy with.

    Both vello tubes enable auto focus, I was wondering if the deluxe version was worth $30 MORE.

    BEWARE..........I have read reports on other forums of 'cheap' tubes getting irremovably stuck and requiring extreme measures, hacksaws :eek:, to shift them.

    I'm not worried about them getting stuck on, personally, unless the auto-focus is slower.
