Just having some fun at my window blind. Shot with the 400L and all 3 Kenko tubes on it from 4.5 feet away.

Hey Alex, wait till I get some real light to play with.

Thanks buddy. You must be working on a series. Haven't seen you for a couple days.

Thanks Ronald. No tripod. I was sitting on the floor beside my window and had the lens braced on my knee.

Thanks Eric. They are a powerfull tool in my Pelican case now. I use them a lot. No quality loss, no f/stop loss, no light loss. What could be better?

Thanks guys. Yes, it should work very well for dragonflies. Figure these are full frame and not cropped, then a crop should really bring them in. I just can't get over the quality of the shots though. Not at all like a TC.

Looks great! One way to help overcome the 400mmL's outlandishly long min focus distance.. = 3 tubes!

Thanks guys. CDS, you can step it down from 10 feet with the 12mm tube to about 6.5 feet with the 36mm, then with all three it brings it right in to about 4 to 4.5 feet. I haven't measuered it. Best of all, you still retain complete AF and all the other stuff the lens sends to the camera. The best of both worlds.
