    I have the Canon 25mm II version that my wonderful wife bought me for Christmas--so no real experience with them. I am very happy with it;it easily mounts and dismounts and the electronics work as they are supposed to. I thinkB&amp;H lists it at$139. Ihave read that many people are also happy with theKenko set which issimilarly priced for a set of 3 extension tubes.Regardless---I now fully realize the advantages of having an extension tube with these waterdrop shots I have been playing with---


    Hope this helps,


    Bob



    Ditto.

    If you could do it over again would you still do the Canon 25mm over the Kenko 12, 20, 36mm set? Seems like a pretty big advantage that you can stack them to get even more magnification. Extension tubes seem like a must have if you really want to get in close even with a dedicated macro lens.

    Yes, but for no other reason than I just try and stick with Canon Products.

    I don't know, Bob, I don't know how hard it is going to be, but what about a cat's face or a fish is easier?[img]/emoticons/emotion-2.gif[/img]

    Ok, JJ---This isn't exactly what I had in mind--but it will have to do for now--I have spent way to much time on this project this weekend--But I will try again in the near future. This is actually a lot of fun, not only the from a photographic and lighting standpoint, but also some of the garage engineering it takes.

    Oh my God! you really did it!!! today?!, I thought it might take couple of days or maybe it's too hard to get. now here you go!


    range from 1-10, how hard do you think it was? I would say 11 because I have no any idea how you did this![Y][Y][Y]


    can you do a cat eating fish? just kidding![]


    BTW, I really beleve that you were so focused on this project, because you seem like have not noticed that I have already got my new 500mm 4.0 yet.[]

    Seriously, its just a photo of my cat (cut out) and taped to the back drop.
