Canon 2818A004 Overview

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.

I got canon 70D camera and 70-300mm lens. This lens is not enough for telescope photgraphying objects at a long distance. What should buy to extend the distance to take pictures of objects far away?

Thats a question fo trial and error as its made for the 50mm macro lens, havent tried it on others but maybe some others can answer it better. if you use it on the macro it is nice some say why not just get the 60 or 100 but i like to use it as my nifty 50.

Can I use this converter on my Canon EF 200mm?
Asked by: Anonymous
No unfortunately. This is only compatible with the Canon EF 50mm f2.5 macro lens.
