I can has t00bz. Quickly taken with a Canon 50mm 1.4 with 12mm and 20mm extension tube.
Wow, maybe I should pick up some. Would make the 50mm a lot more versatile.
Are these Kenko toobz?
Any disadvantage of going to tubes for macro? And can this tube be used on a lens like 80-200 2.8?
Yeah these are kenko tubes. First time doing any macro type work, but you really need to get in close with the 50mm. You might want to check out POTN on macro info because its all new to me.
I mainly got these for ring shot, if I ever do a wedding. Only had it for one night so far but will take more shots with it. Im going to try out different lense too.
You'll get some light loss: http://www.macrophotography.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=15
100 2.8 FTW
is working distance on a macro usually around 2"? This is all new to me
not necessarily. to get a good close up of a skittish critter, you're not going to be able to get that close. He took that with a very nice zoom lens.. 100mm f/2.8.... he could have been sitting 10' back and used the zoom to get in that close.
he blocked the exif.
The EXIF is blocked on flickr since it's the downscaled image from flickr, you can read the EXIF if I linked the original sized image.

I was about 8" away from the wasp, I think.
hmmm Using the 50 with the 12mm and 36mm makes it almost 1:1, but Im working onlyat 2-3" But working with the 85mm with all 3 tubes gives me about 6-7" of woking space.
Just took a couple more
Ah, i did not know that. Overall, very nice shot.
I got a 100 2.8 a couple weeks ago:
and my gf just got me extension tubes
I don't know where the fuck all that dust is coming from though, I think it might be inside the lens?
It doesn't seem to show up on my other glass
Flipped 50 crew?
Not so great...
flipped 50 crew. I'm poor.
