Olympus OM 14 mm extension tube

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Gijs Rietveld, Jun 10, 2004.

  1. Hello photo group,
    Does anybody know if the Olympus OM 7 mm automatic extension tube lacks a
    spring for the aperture simulator and setting, or is mine broken?
    It looks to me that there is no room for it.
    Thanks in advance, Gijs

    There is no spring in the 7mm auto tube like there is for the 14 and 25.

    I've got a Kiron 2x multiplier that also doesn't have a spring, a Vivitar 2x
    7 element variable macro converter that doesn't
    a cheap Vivitar 2x-21 converter that does have a spring. Go figure that
