    I got a set of tubes yesterday. I haven't had much chance to try them yet but was amazed at the amount of detail. It was a yellow tulip and everything seemed the same shade to the eye. I decreased brightness and increased contrast just slightly and the detail seemed to pop.

    I like it. It seems a little dark, and really needs to be lightened.

    I got the set on Ebay for $67. It's a no name brand but is set up so that the autofocus and aperture settings work the way they're supposed to.
