Summary: You mite note that they are same as the canon tubes it's made Buy Kenko but one canon is $230 cn but the Kenko is $279 cn for all three.They really work well i use them on all my lenses 50mm to 100-400mm canon .There are some cheaper tubes out there but the contacts on them may harm your lens or camera body contacts so stay away from them, Kenko contacts are well made and won't harm your lens or camera body......

Summary: I am 14 years old and got these tubes to get a taste of macro. I was totally surprised when I found out that with all three tubes on, I could get 3:1 life size on a 24mm lens. Only bad things about these tubes is loss of light and cannot focus to infinity. Overall an amazing product.
Pros: Maintains full sharpness of lens, Light weight, can get 3:1 life size, small, many different combos
Cons: Severe loss of light, cannot focus to infinity, af is imposible
Summary: I just got my tubes recently. When I was looking to buy, I wasn't sure how I felt about getting a third party accessory since I've had mixed results before. However, the price difference between this set and an equivalent Canon extension tube set was huge, and so I decided to give the Kenko's a try. I've been very well pleased with these extension tubes.
Summary: I use this product mainly for macro photography in conjunction with a 50mm 1.2 prime lens. In this case f/1.2 lets in way too much light, creating heavy chromatic aberation and a razor sharp depth of field which is extremely difficult to control. I mainly shoot between f/2.0 and f/8.0 and would not hesitate to recommend the very affordable 50mm f/1.8 prime lens with the Kenko tubes, which is a great combo value compared to a dedicated macro lens.
Summary: This product is wonderful for the price. I've been using this with my 50mm F1.8 and my 85mm F1.8 and i've been having a blast shooting macro or close to macro shots and it's good for getting a close up picture on a flower or insect.
