    kenko extension tubes?

    I would like to buy extension tubes for my macro lens. I would like to get closer to the subject...
    Based on my research, the Kenko extension tubes seem to be the best ones (quality/price). Do know any alternatives? I would like to keep the communication between the camera and the lens... What are you thoughts?

    You have full communication with the kenko tubes.

    The Kenko tubes are by far the best value out there. You won't be disappointed.

    I use my Kenko tubes all the time, although with manual adapted lens.
    I like them.

    Does anyone know if any extendion tubes will allow for IS on the Canon 100mm macro L?

    The Kenko set will allow for full function of the lens including IS. AF can be effected when shooting at higher magnifications but I don't find that to be an issue since I always manual focus.

    "noname" tubes, full automatic, very light (not metal!) and 25% - 50% of price of others

    price ~ € 40









    I use them also for 3D
