    Okay so I picked up a set of the extension tubes. I tried them on my 25 1.4 and with the 16 the focal point appears to be inside the lens element. With the 10 the focal point is right up against the lens. I am doing something wrong, or is this just the wrong lens to use?

    Thanks.

    wrong lens.

    I don't have hands-on experience with m43 tube & lens combinations but have a lot of experience with such things in other formats. Given the metrics on the m43 mount, I would expect you to have this issue with any m43 native lens with a FL less than about 40-45mm.

    Okay. I guess that makes sense. I will try my longer ones. Thanks.

    I like my Meike tubes with the 45mm. The 25mm is too short and the 75mm is a little too long(but still fun).

    The tubes work very nicely with the 40-150mm...

    When I get a chance I think I will give the 35-100 a try.

    Thanks
