Im looking at venturing into some macro work, but im interested in mechanical subjects instead of insects.
So I guess my question is for some guidance. I currently have 10-22 efs, 24-70 2.8, and 70-200 2.8 lenses, a 580 flash, and I picked up some Hoya close up filters second hand. I plan on putting together a flash mount w/off shoe cord, but im undecided to start with buying a 60mm macro, 100mm macro, or some efs compatible tubes to try with my current lenses?

As usual depends how serious you are but a good start would be with a set of kenko ext tubes and use them with one of your current lenses in the 35mm to 70mm range (or higher for less magnification). IQ will not be quite as good as using them with a prime but better than using the Hoya close up filters. If you then get interested in macro you can use the tubes with a prime macro lens for even higher magnification.

Will the Kenko tubes work with my 10-22EFS?

They will fit EF-S lenses (assuming you get the ones that can fit ef-s and ef mounts, some only fit ef mounts), but I am not sure what you are trying to achieve by putting them on it...

You would probably only be able to use the 12mm tube with that lens as the point of focus becomes so close it can be on the outer lens surface or even inside the lens when using extension tubes.

Wait, so the MWD becomes a negative? Wow, didn't know that could happen...

Too much of a good thing. I need to do some more reading on the effects of the tubes in relation to what each one(length) does to different lens. It appears to not increase the magnification of the subject just allow the focus point to be closer to the lens thus filling the frame with more of the subject.
Thanks, sounds like ill get a set of Kenko's in EFs mount that way I can move toward either a EFs macro or EF macro in the future.

I am pretty sure it can happen with any lens given enough extension tubes =P
