Extension Tubes for Nikon D300


I have a Nikon D300 and a Tokina AT-X 100 PRO D AF 100mm f2.8 macro lense. I am interested in getting even closer to subjects and wondered what other options are there for this camera besides extension tubes. I have heard if bellows, and a reverse mount for a lense. Has anyone had success with any of these methods with the D300?

  Yes... reversing rings, extension tubes and bellows assemblies work well with the D300, as long as the lens mount is the same. I use all three quite often for my macro work. You will need to rely upon your own ability to use the manual settings on your camera though.

  My list includes the following:
Reversing Ring...Nikon BR-2A 52mm thread.
Bellows....Nikon PB-4 (No longer made but still available used on e-bay.)
Extension Tubes...Generic (Kenko, I think) in 12, 20, 36mm.

  I also use the Kenco extensions. They work best on my 80-200.
