It doesn't look like the current E-mount lens line (16, 18-55, 18-200) has any lens that goes well with an extension tube. The 16 is too short, so that even a minute amout of extension will move the far focus distance inside the lens, and the zooms have a comparable problem at 18mm. I guess Sony doesn't want to have to explain all the limitations that go with tubes..
Kind regards,
