The 14198 and 14262 extension tubes, un-modified, are usable only on these
two macro lenses.  If you're using only R bodies (no Leicaflex of any
subspecies) the 14256 is more versatile since it can be used with most R
lenses.  The 14198, 14262 and 14256 are all 30mm long, no difference in
extension.  The 14198 and 14262 can be modified to work with most lenses
and if you're using a Leicaflex as well as an R this IMHO is the best
