Good shots, modestglock - those tubes seem to be paying dividends.

Thank you all. Right now I'm just using some cheap tubes that I wanted to try out a while back before realizing I should've bought the ones that would allow me to change the aperture. I am saving up for a 100mm 2.8 but it's going to take be a bit to do so. Trying to sell some spare gear to make it happen quicker. I did just order a set of new tubes though, and this time they are the ones that will allow the lens to communicate properly. Hoping to have a little more luck with those in the meantime.

Very true. The new rings were bought only due to a gift card and I figured if tubes were going to be my only macro option for the time being, they might as well be the kind that will let the lens communicate to the body.

I was recently gifted a pristine 40d with a few lenses from friends of the family and it just happened to be that I had just ordered a 40d online for cheap at the same time. The one I ordered showed up in the mail the same day I was gifted the other...I'm not complaining though :)

Hopefully I can sell off one of the 40d's and the duplicate lenses I got to fund the real macro lens. That's probably going to be my fastest route to getting the 100mm.

I was actually looking at the same ones. I wound up ordering these just to have another go at it:
