    I'm looking for a new or used Nikon extension tube PK-3 to fit to my Micro Nikkor 55mm. It was probably made in the 1970s and I'm willing to spend around $50 on it.If you have one for sale and are willing to ship it to Germany,please contact me at rlambrec@gmail.com.Thanks

    Is your Micro Nikkor 55mm the 'non-ai version' ? If not I'm quite sure you better look for another PK-xx extension tube.
    Norbert Michalke from Nikonclassics has always Nikon macro-stuff listed. https://nikonclassics-michalke.de/

    OK - sorry if you've had problems. So far I've been lucky and no problems

    If your 55mm Micro-Nikkor is AI, you'll need a PK-13. For pre-AI, a PK-3 is fine.

    They shouldn't be expensive: I bought an as-new condition PK-13 within the last year for $20 (from an actual camera store).

    Yes, german customs offices visits can be a harassment of the worst kind, treating people like criminals instead of just having them pay their duties and taxes. That is why I try avoid such visits too.

    I got mine now from NikonClassics in Berlin,no customs, no hassle but an almost new piece for little money; works great too much better than the Chinese alternative I also bought.
