    Fuji announces two new extension tubes

    Compatible with just about every lens, and giving 1:1 with the MC-EX16 and the 18mm and 16-50mm and as near as, with the 18-55mm. The 60mm gives a very useful .76

    And the prices are good too!

    would these work with non-Fuji X-mount lenses, do you think?

    certainly, but there would definitely be cheaper ways of doing that. An extension tube is an extension tube. The only thing that makes these of any interest at all is that they have the electrical contacts so you can still auto focus. Any other extension tube will allow to focus closer, but you will need to focus manually.

    I found some even cheaper ones on eBay (£19 for 10mm and 16mm) and they seem to work fine with AF. Examples to follow :)
