    This is the simplest solution to enable using an MTX24 flash with a Canon 100mm IS lens. It's also the cheapest option.

    This adapter is solid and fits snugly to both the lens and the flash mount. There is not worry of slippage. For most people this is what they need.

    The main drawback is that it prevents you from using a filter. There is no glass in the adapter, it's just a ring so splashes or other hazards can get right to your lens.

    For advanced users that want filters and more precise positioning of the flash heads, a macro flash bracket system is a better solution at a much higher price.

    The ring is beautifully machined and high quality. It works as described. However, Canon should have thought of a couple of things to make it even better. It would be most convenient to screw the ring onto the lens and forget it but unfortunately, neither the lens cap nor the hood will fit on the lens with the ring attached. So the ring gets thrown in your bag and lost! So far I still have mine.

                The Canon Macrolite Adapter 67 attaches Macro Flashes to most 67mm filter size lenses including the Canon 100mm f2.8L Series Macro Lens. Adapter is a little expensive but needed for these flashes.

                  This does the job of bridging the connection of your macro flash (MT-14 or MT-24 EX) to your 100mm L macro.

                    It's unfortunate that this product is necessary, but this product works great. This product is used to mount canon macro flashes on canon macro lenses larger than 58mm filter sizes

                      My only question is this. Given the cost to Canon and it's distributors of packaging, inventory accounting, and so on, wouldn't it be cheaper for everyone to just include this ring in the packaging for the main MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite originally? My guess is about half of all these ring lights end up on the 100mm f2.8L Series lenses anyway.

                        It does what it is intended to do. It allows my ring light to be mounted securely onto my macro lens

                              I bought this for a Canon Macro Ring Light so it would fit onto my 100mm f2.5 L macro lens. Easy to install on the lens (fits like any screw in filter does) and securely holds the Ring Light. I've notice no vignetting from using this.

                              Like any other add-on filter I do not recommend you screw this adapter onto a UV filter. My experience is that when you attach two screw-in filters, they will "fuse" and become difficult to separate. I've done this numerous times by having a UV filter on my lens and then adding a Polarizing filter on top of it. I end up having to use a pair of pliers to get them apart (fortunately no damage to either filter - just a pain to do)

                                        it works but after spending a large amount of money to own Canon propritary equipment this should be a lot cheaper. I do understand the costs of manufacturing when it comes to limited supply but this is ridiculous.

                                            This adapter allows me to use the MR-14 macro ringlight on my 100mm 2.8L IS macro lens. although the MR-14 states that filters cannot be used in conjunction with the device, I find that by using a threaded filter, I can fit this adapter and still have the added protection and functionality of UV and Polarizing filters. all metal construction.

                                                This is a must have adapter for use with the MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite and Canon's 100mm 2.8 L IS USM lens which in themselves are great products. I haven't gone wrong purchasing any Canon products. It's always a pleasure
                                                buying from BH I might add.

                                                  You need to have it for EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens _if you use_ MR-14EX TTL Macro Ring Lite Flash.
                                                  The last 2 kind of designed to be together.
                                                  Works as expected; no cons.

                                                  Comments about Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter:

                                                  The adapter works well, but seems ridiculously overpriced for what it is.
