Hi Guys has anybody got any photos taken with a 50-200 plus ex25? been thinking how this combo might work.

I have just bought an OLympus ex-25 tube to go with my 50-200SWD the photos were at the 200mm length handheld on an Olympus E30 using the Macro symbol on the camera.
These are my first attempts.
Photos can be seen on flickr site below.

Hi
I've still not figured out how to stick a picture from my albums into a message but if you look under my Miscellany 1 album you will find a picture of Whooper swans taken with just such a combination.
It was cumbersome and I used a tripod. It is cropped by about half and the birds were about 100 yards away. No hide. It was also a dull January day so poor light.
I had hired the combination, for most of the rest of that week I stuck with just the lens.
I will have another go on Orkney at the end of May.

Oops sorry.
I'm mixing up extension tubes and converters.
It is an interesting combination and presumably very good for making sure there are no unnecessary shadows in shot or for not disturbing wildlife.
