    With all those tubes stacked, what mm does that equate to?

    118?

    i beleive its the same focal length but the magnification is increased, IE i can get closer to the subject. On the sample shot, i had to take off teh hood because i couldnt get near close enough to the cap to focus.

    i paid 100 shipped and paypalled used.

    could have bought them new, but i dont feel like paying brand new for "air". Nothing to these tubes, i mean its an electrical connection just for AF. and the rest is just air.

    Extension tubes dont change focal length. All they do is change your MFD. Everything is shifted closer. As a side-effect, you also lose infinity focus.
