The Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Canon EOS Lenses from Kenko contains three tubes of different lengths--12mm, 20mm, and 36mm--which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. They are compatible with Canon EF and EFS lenses.

Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal minimum focusing distance. They have the effect of magnifying your subject and are useful for macro photography, allowing you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens while maintaining its original optical quality.

The extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film/sensor plane. By moving the lens farther away from the film or sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus.

These Kenko Auto Extension Tubes retain auto focus capability with Canon AF lenses providing the effective aperture stays at f/5.6 or brighter.

12mm, 20mm, 36mm extension tubes work individually or in combination
Allows close-up macro photography with non-macro lens
Retains auto focus function when effective aperture stays at f/5.6 or brighter(f/8 or brighter on EOS 3, 1V & 1D cameras)

    I am using these tubes with my Canon 50D, 17-40, 24-105 and my 70-200 2.8 IS. All work well. The fit is snug and trustworthy. I sure wouldn't want my glass to fall off my camera.

    Having the 3 tubes for the price of one Canon tube is a huge plus if you plan to use different focal length lenses.

    If you are looking to do some inexpensive macro photos, this is definitely the way to go.

    I'm thinking about returning these since they are so expensive and you don't really feel that expense in the product. The results are good so at least you have decent shots but I think I'm sending these back. They feel cheap, if the whole thing was metal I could see the expense but all this plastic, makes me feel like they aren't going to last and why would I pay so much for something I'm just going to replace in 6months with a real lens.

        Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Canon EOS Lenses:

        I was looking to get into some macro photography as Spring is about to start. Didn't want to invest in a $ dollar lens, so I thought I would try these instead. The quality of the build is nice. The fit is secure even with my Sigma 50mm and my Canon 18-55 lens. I am just really starting to understand how to use these Extension tubes. I love the fact that they have the ability to autofocus your lens. The first few pictures were OK, but the more I use the tubes, the better I am with getting the aperture right.Really delivers on an inexpensive solution for a macro lens.

          I'm a beginning photographer and usually focus on wildlife with my Rebel T5 and my 100-400mm lens, but it has been so cold and snowy, I decided to try some macro work. I purchased these extension tubes and I'm thrilled with the shots I'm getting with my EFS 18-55mm lens. I've been stacking all three tubes with the lens and have been discovering other worlds by photographing fruit, flowers, grains, driftwood, burlap, and other things with interesting textures. My shots look great and I'm getting a whole different perspective. I really like the results.

              I put these tubes between my Canon 6D and the 24-105 zoom lens and got some great shots of dew on a spider web for my first shots.
              Using the zoom lens allows me to get the camera close to the correct distance and then make final adjustments using the zoom feature.
              Tubes are well made and feel good and solid.

                I was looking for these extension tubs for a long time. B&H had them for a very good price and I receive them in a few days about a week before the expected arrival time. The product is durable and rugged and tests them with few Canon lens and the results are very good. It is good to turn any of your lenses to a macro lens (easy).

                  I use it with Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens for Canon SLR Camera. Specially recommend it with 12 and 36mm tubes all together plus tripod of course. Resolts are very good and price much lower than a macro lens.

                  Allows the user to achieve macro results with any lens, with the loss of infinity focus. When all three tubes are attached to the ef100mmL lens the results are close to 2:1!

                    Comments about Kenko Auto Extension Tube Set DG for Canon EOS Lenses:

                    I like using these with the 70-200 since it allows me to vary the distance a bit using the zoom vs wobbling back and forth like it does on a prime. I played with various combinations of the tubes and all worked extremely well for macro work.

                    if you are trying to describe what the tubes do, the best way to put it is that it makes your lens very near-sighted. about the only drawback to tubes vs a dedicated macro lens is not being able to shoot distant objects as well, but when I'm in a macro mood it is a non-issue for me.

                          Works well, and opens up new uses for most of my other lenses.

                          One could quibble about the price charged for a simple device like this, or just shrug and be glad it's relatively cheap compared to all the other gear.

                          I am using the tubes with all of my lenses, just to see what they will do. They are well made, although they are a bit tough to get on at first. I would recommend this product to friends, I have actually.

                            I have only used it a couple of times and I like the effect that I'm getting. Looking forward to having some more fun with it.
