Not a bad deal @ $135.

Those can be used on both EF and EF-S lenses. Good deal, but i wonder how "new" they are. About 1/2 way down the page, it says

Absolutely 100% New Condition!!!! If they were completely unused, why would you put "new condition".. rather than Absolutely 100% New!!!! ? ;)

Under Item specifics the ad says " Condition: New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable)."

Two points to consider if they are used. Macro extensions tubes just don't get used a lot, and even if they are used there are no moving parts, so there is very little to go wrong. $135 is a good deal for brand new. You can occasionally find them used for $100, but for $100 they get snatched up quick, especially here on POTN. -rick

I noticed those are selling for $199 US at most retailers now, so that eBay price is definitely good (under $150 including shipping).

I wouldn't worry too much about new or used either... as Rick said, there are few moving parts so not much to go wrong with them, even if they have been used. But I get the impression from the ad on eBay that they are new... And the seller has lots of good feedback.

Yeah, even if they were used, it wouldn't matter. I'm just very leery about CL and eBay. It just seems weird to me.. the wording. As alazgr8 pointed out, what constitutes new ( and i read that), yet..it seems, the seller still felt the need to put this there.

Anyways.. good deal, i would go for it.

They're coming from Hong Kong, so the seller's English might not be perfect. I wouldn't worry about minor nuances in the wording. I'd say his 99.9% positive feedback is a good indication that they're new.

There is also a used set, "excellent" condition from a seller in Colorado. Current price as of 8 AM Eastern time is $75 but reserve hasn't been met and the auction ends in about 13 hours. Seller has other 5D "stuff" as well. Go to http://www.ebay.com …Tubes&hash=item​416e900daa (external link) for the details.

Also, used, in Canada, 1-bid ($55) at http://www.ebay.com …enses&hash=item​3cccd1eee1 (external link).
