This item was necessary to enable me to use a Canon MR14-EX with my Canon 100mm L IS Macro lens. I works as expected. Though you do need a 58mm lens cap if you wish to keep the Macrolite adaptor on your lens permanently. You cannnot have a filter (protection or others) mounted with the adaptor on the lens

This product has one, and only one use: to provide a mount point for Canon's ringlight macro flashes.

Forgetting the fact that a far better solution would been to mount directly to the lens, this adapter is cheaply made, and tends to seize itself to whatever you mate it with - in my case a B&W UV filter. I spent half a day getting this thing separated from the filter.

Worse, it's ridiculously expensive. If Canon really was forced to use an adapter, it should have been included with the flash unit.

If you have the canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 L series IS USM macro lens you will need this adaptor to use either of canon's macro flashes. Works just fine.

Remember a lens cap

Comments about Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter:

Recently purchased the MT-24EX macro flash system.  To use with the L-series 100 mm macro lens, you need this adapter.  That's ok, except that perhaps the price is a bit high considering it is mandatory to match these two products together.

One point to consider: the 67 mm lens cap that comes with the 100mm lens no longer works with the 67 Macrolite Adapter.  I purchased a 58 mm lens cap so as to not have to remove the adapter to protect the lens.  "just a suggestion"

      Comments about Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter:

      I use it for what it is intended, fastening my Canon ring flash to my Canon Ef 100mm macro IS lens. Before I read the instructions for the lens, I fastened my UV filter to the adapter before attaching the ring flash. The threads seemed to work ok getting it on, but I almost ruined both the filter and the adapter trying to get them apart again. I then read the instructions for the lens, and discovered that one cannot for some unexplained reason use a filter when using the adapter. For a lens at that price, I definitely like to protect it with a UV filter, or even use a polarizing filter. Now I just have to remember to unscrew the filter every time I use the flash, not a good solution!

        Comments about Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter:

        This is an essential accessory when attaching a Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14 EX to the front of a non macro lens. It just screws into the filter thread of the lens and then the Macro-Lite attaches to this ring.

        It is very simple and easy to use and gets the job done.

        I don't use the Macro Lite for macro shots. I attach it to a Canon 18-135 STM lens (hence the need for this adapter) for use in taking product shots for my business.

            Comments about Canon 67 Macrolite Adapter:

            The 67 Macrolite Adapter by Canon does work for allowing me to attach the Macro Ring Lite MR-14ExII to my Canon Macro EF 100 mm lens. However, the detent grooves that allow for the quick snap on of the flash unit has no stop detents. This allows the flash to rotate 360 degrees with very little to no resistance. This could put the flash or lights out of position. Suggested improvement for Canon; include stop detents on Adapter and/or Flash unit to prevent unintentional rotation or improve groove system to provide some resistance. I added some tack spray to the grooves to overcome this issue. Recomended with caveats.
