I know that the rear element will get in the way of the mirror when attaching a EF-S lens to a 5D but has anyone used an extension tube to get around it? And what effect did it have on the pictures?

EF-S lens were designed for the smaller APS-C sensors not for FF. There is a reason that Canon Ef-s lenses can't be mounted directly on a FF body. Why do you want to do it?

I tried it once and it does work, but the EF-S image circle is too small for the 5D and causes vignetting. This was taken with a 12 mm extension tube on a 55-250mm Ef-S lens at 55mm using a 5Dc.

Extension tubes will allow it to focus closer, but with a loss of distant focus. Think of it as a cheap way to get a "kind of" close focusing macro-ish lens. If you hoping to take something like a 55-250 and get a teleconverter to fit on it for a longer lens, it will work - but not the way you want. It will only focus close. So it is not a cheap way to get a telephoto for your 5d. Plus the vignetting already mentioned.


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Not saying I want to just something I was thinking about when I learnt the main differences between the 2 and had the idea. I knew someone out there would have tried it so that's why I asked.

I've tried all of my EF-S lenses on my 5D with the Canon EF12 II extension tube. Only the EF-S 60mm macro lens makes a useful combination. It is the only one with an image circle large enough to cover full frame. All of the others don't have enough image to cover. With the 12mm tube, the lens gets magnifications from 0.2 to 1.28x between the min and max focus distances so it is only useful for very close up work but it does work.

With slight modification, the 10-22 mounts on 5D series cameras, c.f. this thread on POTN and this post (external link) on DPR.

I think the vignetting looks cool. People dismissing the notion with 'why?' have Either lost sight of a bit of fun creativity, or lost a little of just plain curiosity.

Wow, it's crazy how many people just say "it can't be done", "why would you ever want to do that?"

None of that matters. Just answer the question. Don't tell the guy that he shouldn't ask the question.

The point is, I think, there are so many great lenses specifically made for FF, I wonder why anyone would go to the trouble to fit a lens that is not optimized for that format. Even after reading the various comments I don't see any advantage to doing so other than perhaps having a bit of fun and seeing if its possible.

You answered your own question. :p

Sometimes, people use what they have, and if it's a small cost to open another world, it can be an interesting proposition. I,m considering what an extension tube can do for my whole collection, which is why I was searching for threads like this.

I don't have a full frame camera, but who knows in future. It's always just interesting to know e limits and functionality of my gear, I reckon. No harm in asking.

Seems there is two very opposite sides to liking this idea. And I do like the idea of playing around and having fun and seeing what is possible, which is why I asked the question. Glad to see there are other inquisitive minds out there like mine!
