Using Lens Extension Tubes reduces the minimum focus distance of lenses

Connecting a lens tube behind the lens will move the lens farther away from the camera's film plane or digital sensor, which allows the lens to focus much closer than it normally would. 

Extension tubes are commonly used for wildlife and macro photography.

VMI stock lens tubes or macro tubes with EF and PL mounts in order to give the maximum versatility for film makers.

Duclos produce Extension Tubes with a PL mount in three lengths, 15mm, 20mm, and 35mm and these stack-able up to 70mm of extension.

VMI stock the Duclos 3-lens PL Extension Tube Set which allows you to decrease the minimum focus of your PL mount lens to achieve results similar to unique macro lenses. Decrease the minimum focus distance to within a few inches of the front element while maintaining optimal image quality. 

The stainless steel components, precision tolerances, and optically flat internal surface finish of the Duclos Extension Tubes are meticulously married to reduce stray light and ensure the highest quality is maintained.

Note that the PL Extension Tubes are fully compatible with S35 and 35FF format lenses and cameras but do NOT work with anamorphic lenses.
