    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Its made of metal and there are lots of options in when using it with your different lenses. Price is great. Works well. Fits snugly on both ends but not to where you can't take it off. It feels sturdy and solid, not flimsy at all. Nice black color.

    Cons:

    It's not the Canon brand. Mine didn't come with any instructions, but it's pretty straightforward enough. Metal rings fit a bit snugly but not enough so that I feel it will get stuck. (Just don't screw them in too hard.)

    It took about a month to receive, but hey, shipping was "free".

    OtherThoughts:

    The inside metal part is not black but a silver color. The markings to line up your connections are clearly marked by a red dot. Yes, you can set aperture priority (AV) and all you have to do is zoom manually. (Obviously, automatic zoom is disabled.)

    Bottomline:

    Works great and a great price. As soon as I saw this, I had to grab it. The metal body feels nice to have instead of it being plastic. If I ever lose this, I'm definitely going to get myself another one. =]
