I have used a 12mm extension tube with my 70-200. The Canon 500 close up filter really ROCKS on the lens though. If you are interested, you'll need to get a 77mm 500D and a 67-77mm adapter.

Take this for what it is, me not being good at "macro" :)

It was taken with t1i, 70-200f4 L IS and Zeikos extension tubes (I think I was using the 31mm and 13mm tubes I think)

That is a really long setup... What other lenses do you have? you may be better off reversing a 50 or 30mm on another lens. A reversing ring is only a few bucks and maybe enough to get you what you want into macro. {depending on the lenses you already have}

sigma 30. I could do that, but I would prefer to do the 70-200.

I've done this in the past with Kenko tubes, and the results were very good. Remember, even with all 3 tubes (36, 20 and 12) you'll be just shy of 1:1 mag at 70mm focal length.

Also, as previously mentioned, this is a very long setup. I prefered using the tubes with my 50mm.
