Review: Fotodiox Macro Extension Tube

I've never done much macro (extreme close-up) shooting, but I still think it's pretty cool.  When Fotodiox offered to send me an adapter that would make any of my lenses into macro lenses, I jumped at the chance.  At only $10 (for the Sony NEX version), it's a steal. It's definitely not perfect, but the low price more than compensates for the hoops you may have to jump through to get it to work properly.

gives you uber-cool extreme close-up video

is only effective with manual lenses (no electronic pass-through)
adds weird tilt to camera (when used with Fotodiox lens adapter with tripod mount)
need long lens for practical use (only a con if you don't have one)
