Canon 9198A001 overview

  • 1Description

The result of using extension tubes is that the distance from the back of the lens to the film surface is longer, which means you can take photographs at shorter distances to the subject. Extension tubes are thus commonly used for macro photography and sometimes for closeup portraits.

When using the camera's TTL metering system, no exposure compensation will be required (exposure compensation is required for handheld meters).

This updated version II is now also fully compatible with Canon Digital EF-S lenses, as well as standard photo EF and TS-E lenses.

Extension Tube EF 12 II is especially suited for close-focusing with wide-angle lenses. Compatible with all lenses, except 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, 14mm f/2.8L and MP-E 65mm f/2.8.

Shortens focusing distance of lens
Compatible with digital EF-S lenses, as well as EF and TS-E lenses
White-index mark provided for digital SLR EF-S lenses
Red mark provided for photo lenses

    Canon 9198A001 reviews

    Extension Tube EF 12 II is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 173.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to your lens collection I do a lot of wildlife photography and often come across insects and flowers that present excellent photographic opportunities. Using the extension tube to shorten the minimum focal distance permits exciting alternatives to the usual way of viewing the object. I have both EF and EFS lenses and have tested it on all the lenses with good results. It fits all the lenses and I have experienced no problems of sticking/tight fit when changing lenses. Light metering works well but autofocus needs to be turned off. Canon provides a usefel table with the extension tube that lists the change in minimum focal distance so that it can be used to pre-plan shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from portable macro I first heard about the Extension Tube Ef 12 II while watching photographer Joe DiMaggio's workshop for B&H. DiMaggio encouraged photographers to carry this highly portable extension with them at all times. I took seriously his recommendation and I am satisfied with the results. I don't believe, however, that the tube can or will replace a good macro lens. Since I cannot carry a 100mm macro lens with me whenever go, and macro photography is not central to what I mostly capture, I am highly content with the idea of keeping the tube inside my shoulder bag or even inside my pocket. As we all know, the photographic world is full of surprises.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on the Canon 100-400 lens I bought this and the EF 12 II for use in photographing butterflies and am extremely happy with the results. I have used the EF 25 II & the EF12 II either alone or combined on my Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS lens on my Canon 7D to allow me to get closer to the bugs thereby increasing the magnification with excellent results. Light loss is minimal/not noticeable with excellent detail; I have not found any significant impact to focusing speed. I have also used these with the 24-105 f/4L IS lens, although you have to get much closer to the bugs for good results while increasing the chances they'll fly away. @

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Having fun Photography is a hobby. I like to shoot closeups but at this point don't want to spend the money on a dedicated macro lens so got this extension tube and have had it for a week. Use it mainly with my nifty fifty lens and have tried it with my 70-200mm f4 lens. I have a Canon 7D. It does not work with auto focus. But not a problem. Sending along a photo with and without the extension tube.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Extension tubes are a great alternative to costlier macro lenses and less expensive close-up lenses. If you are thinking about getting into macro photography or just don't have the need for a macro dedicated lens, then this may be a great product for you to try. I get full function from my Canon and Sigma EF, EF-S lenses. Build quality is excellent and product has a very solid feel. No flex noted between lens and camera body. The EF 12 II meets all my current macro demands. I do wish that the tubes were slightly less expensive (Canon or Kenko). They seem a bit overpriced for what they are - spacers between the lens and body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typically good Canon product Very useful addition if you don't wish to buy a macro lens. I use it with the nifty fifty and my 18-55mm kit lens, both are good copies. Macro 1:1 is not feasible, but it can get much closer to a flora subject than without; in some cases, close to macro size. It is a bit tricky to assemble a setup in the field, so I leave home with everything connected. Although this type photography is tripod and manual focus recommended, I use the combination outside mostly off hand and automatic with no problem. The lenses I use are the nifty fifty and the 18-55mm kit. There are other possible lens combinations but these two give me a shot at something less than macro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for macro and close up birding I bought this extension tube primarily for macro use on the Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 USM lens, but it is also useful for birding with lenses such as the Canon EF 400 mm f/5.6L USM when closer focusing is desired and longer range is not needed (working distance is 8.5 to 43.1 feet). This extension tube is solidly built and does not introduce any flex between the camera body and lens. It also allows autofocus to function normally.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Macro at greater than 50 mm. I first tried out this macro extension tube on an EF-S 10-18 ultra-wide zoom. No matter how much I varied my distance to the subject or adjusted the manual focusing ring the image remained completely out of focus. On the included comprehensive spec sheet this lens was not listed and I assumed it was because it was a fairly new lens. Next day, trying out the extension tube with the EF-S 15-85, I found that a focused image was impossible to achieve optically with the zoom set at less than approximately 50 mm, but at the longer end of the zoom range there was no problem in getting a perfectly focused macro image. So the EF 12 II extension tube has its limitations. Other than that, the item is a very well designed and constructed Canon accessory that works flawlessly. All auto exposure features on the lens coupled to the extension tube work normally, and focusing is best done through varying your distance to the subject and fine focusing manually.
