Excerpt: If you do not want a set of extension tubes, this is the only way to get just one.The body of the tube is plastic and the bayonet ends are metal.I have a set of Kenko extension tubes, and for all intensive purposes, I can't spot any striking visual differences between this 12mm Canon tube and the...
Excerpt: I wanted to do some macro photography without buying a new lens. Good solid build and fastens to my camera and lens with a snug firm fit. Not to tight and definitely not loose. Work great with my 70-300 Tamron no wiggle at all and well with my 17-50 Tamron but at the upper end of the zoom range.
Excerpt: the canon extension tube really gets you so much closer to smaller subjects without having to buy an expensive macro lens. I'm using it with my canon 85mm 1.8 lens and the auto focus works well. There is some vignetting but it could be due to the small depth of field.
Excerpt: I use this with a Canon 50 mm 1.4 lens and it is great. I have a 100 mm Canon Macro but it is big and heavy. This fits easily into my vacation camera bag that holds only the 6D, 24-105 mm lens, a flash, small tripod, the 50mm and now the Extension Tube.
Excerpt: I had another brand of extention tube and recently purchased the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens. The other brand of extention tube did not work because the sigma (as well as other lenses) is rear focus which hit some of the structure of the tube.
