The Canon Life-Size Converter EF is dedicated exclusively to the 50mm f2.5 Macro lens. Unlike a conventional extension tube, the Life-Size Converter EF has a 4-element optical design that acts like a tele-extender, allowing magnifications from 0.26x to 1x while increasing the working distance from the front of the lens to the subject.

          Adding this to my 50mm 2.5 gave me superb macro results at far less than the cost of buying the 100mm macro.

            Comments about Canon Life-Size Converter EF:

            The combination of the 50mm lens and the dedicated converter provide a wide range of photography options. The 50mm can be used as a very good standard lens but with the converter you almost match the performance of a 100mm macro lens

              I almost sold my 50mm Macro until I used this.. If you have a 50mm Macro all I can say is you need this.

                My Canon 50mm macro was an underwhelming lens until I stuck this on it. Doubt I'll ever take it off now. It certainly saved a lens I was considering selling.

                  I use the Life-Size Converter in photographing small flowers and insects. The accompanying documentation is minimal. The 50mm macro lens has a minimum f-stop of f32. With the Life-Size Converter, my EOS-5D says the minimum f-stop is f57!

                    I am a working pro (41 years) and an ex Nikon user. I switched to Canon three years ago and have pleased consistantly.
                    This product lives up to Canon's description and lives up to my standards as well.
                    As a working pro, I would recommend this adapter to any canon user of their macro lens as a "must have".

                      It is a good way to increase magnification in macro-photogrphy without geting to close to your subject.
