FOTGA AF Automatic Macro Extension Tubes

I have 2 sets, both boxed. Each set has 10 and 16mm tubes with electronic pass through for full auto operation. They are for Micro Four Thirds. Very good condition.
12 per set posted.

They are extension tubes (no glass) which, broadly speaking, turn any lens into a "macro" lens.

Check out these links for how they work...

Darn, these would have been great with my 60mm macro. Missed the boat again!
