    Does Exactly What It Is Meant To Do

    I use the MT-24EX Macro Twin Light Flash which directly fits the EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, and MP-E 65mm lenses and adaptors are required to work with other lenses. The adaptor screws into the lens filter threads and the allowing the flash unit to be used on a wide variety of lens choices greatly increasing the versatility of the flash. This metal adaptor is of high quality and does exactly what it is supposed to do, ie creating a secure attachment point for the macro ring. I highly recommend this product.

    Works as advertised

    Use with my Sigma 150 and works perfect. Cost is my complaint. After spending a lot of money on a Canon macro flash these should have a smaller margin for Canon.

        I bought this to use with extension tubes and my 24-70. Although I had to also get a step-down 77-72 ring it works well when I use the lens to shoot macro. Vignetting only occurs when the lens is zoomed wider than 35mm.

        Great item, but would be nice if I could use the lens cap with the ring screwed on. If you like to leave the adapter on your lens, you will need a 58mm lens cap.

            • With Mt24 And 180 Mm Lens

            Comments about Canon 72C Macrolite Adapter:

            If you are going to use the MT-24EX flash on a canon 180 mm Macro lens then you need this adapter. The mounting ring that comes with the flash is for a different lens. This adapter snaps into the MT-24EX ring and then screws into the filter ring of the 180 mm lens. The full opening of the lens has is unobstructed even with the adapter. Kind of pricey, but where else are you going to get it. You can buy much more expensive arms to mount the flashes, and may want to do so still.

                        This permits the use of Canon's macro flash units (built for 58mm lens front like the original 100mm macro lens) on lenses with 72mm fronts. Sadly, these expensive flashes don't fit the 180mm macro or the new 100mm IS macro lens. IMHO, Canon should throw in these rings for the macro flashes so they will fit their full range of macro lenses.

                          Not much to say about this. Fits the lens perfectly and the Macrolite snaps on and off with ease.

                          My only issue is that you cannot use your lens cap with this adapter in place. That's why it's a 4 star, instead of a 5 star rating.

                                    This adapter works well on the 180mm macro lens with my twin flash. Pretty idiot proof. If you do lots of macro work you probably need one on each of your different sized lenses to get the best use of the flash. Good construction.

                                            Not much to rate here since it is a simple product that works well. It works on both the Canon 180mm and Sigma 150mm F2.8 Macro lenses.

                                              I use the MT-24EX Macro Twin Light Flash which directly fits the EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, and MP-E 65mm lenses and adaptors are required to work with other lenses. The adaptor screws into the lens filter threads and the allowing the flash unit to be used on a wide variety of lens choices greatly increasing the versatility of the flash. This metal adaptor is of high quality and does exactly what it is supposed to do, ie creating a secure attachment point for the macro ring. I highly recommend this product.

                                                  It is a bit expansive, but if you want to use the MR-14EX frash with Canon EF 180mm L or Sigma 150mm Macro lenses - must have it.
