Great value for money, works perfect! – Macro Extension Tube/Ring for Canon SLR/DSLR Cameras Reviews

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

Pros:
A cheap way to start making macro photo's! 3 sizes of tube that you can combine to fit a particular lens. My 70-200 L can use all tubes together and still focus, normal focus distance 120cm, now in front of lens! My 17-50 tamron has a minimum focus distance of 27 cm or so, with ring 1&2 combined i can also get all the way up to the front element!
Cons:
None for the money, if you want autofocus get the real expensive ones that have electronic contacts.
Other:
Maybe a small pouch or something would be nice to store them in. Now they just sit in a compartment in the camerabag, i cant put a lens ontop of it because i'm afraid that will scratch my lens. The rings are metal so good buildquality but potentialy can scratch items placed ontop of them in a bag.
Bottomline:
No-brainer, get these and start making pictures! Great way to see if you like macro or not!
