Is this lens compatible with the Canon MR-14EX II Macro Ring Lite?
Asked by: Franz
While this lens is compatible with the MR-14EX II Macrolite, realize that after you spend $1400 for the lens and $550 for the flash, you will still have to purchase the 67 mm Macrolite adapter to connect the two.

What is the working distance at 1x and 1.4x?

What is the working distance at 1x and 1.4x?
Asked by: Ed
Focusing distance at 1.4x is 10.2" inches / 26 cm. This is measured from the Sensor Plane. Measuring from the end of the lens this would be 3.6" inches / 9 cm. Unfortunately as this lens has not been made available yet and it is not listed in the specs, we do not yet have information on focusing distance at 1x. Though it would definitely be a longer distance than at 1.4x.
