  • 1Description

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.

    Canon 2818A004 reviews

    Life-Size Converter EF is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful for Canon Macro 50mm It is a good way to increase magnification in macro-photogrphy without geting to close to your subject.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, handy and useful 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A most have for 50mm Macro I almost sold my 50mm Macro until I used this.. If you have a 50mm Macro all I can say is you need this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Accessory The Canon 50mm f2.5 Macro is a very sharp, lightweight, excellent normal focal length prime lens that is optically corrected for close-focus work.....but it only magnifies down to half life size. This converter, which is designed to work ONLY with this lens, brings its magnification down to full life size, allowing the versatility of both types of use. The combination costs about the same as a Canon 100mm Macro (not the L), so the only advantage is if you want a dual-use 50 in your bag. This versatility works very well for my needs. Typical excellent Canon quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon shows pro quality 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been converted 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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to 100mm Macro Adding this to my 50mm 2.5 gave me superb macro results at far less than the cost of buying the 100mm macro.
