Mind if I join?
I've got a Canon 60D and my most used lens is my 60mm f/2.8, which I like to use to take pictures of my bugs and inanimate objects.

I just got the Canon rebel t3 can I join.
Also on macro lenses, is it worth to buy one off ebay?

Traded the 16-35mm f/2.8L for a 24-105mm f/4L, a 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, and $550 cash.
I loved the 16-35, but the low range won't do any justice when it's my main [workhorse] lens (I'm going to Europe and I'm only allowed to take 1 lens + the 40mm pancake). The 24-105 should do better, the f/4 may be a bit high, but for me, its a better deal. The 10-22 also should complement my APS-C on the 70D better. And cash is cash, lol.

Macro tubes work fine. I've heard okay things about the fotodiox tubes. With that setup you will be manual all the way. Macro is often done with manual focus even if you have the option of AF, so that's not really a big deal. But, I don't think these have any electronic connection to the lens, so you will not be able to stop down. This will give you a very narrow depth of field (only a narrow slice will be in focus), which can be good or bad, depending on what you are going for. The Kenko or Canon extension tubes allow you to change the aperture, but they are more expensive. Also, any time you are using extension tubes, it changes the focus range of your lens, so you will usually have a far focus limit as well as a near focus limit - i.e. you won't be able to focus on things that are far away (more than a few feet) while the extension tubes are on.

Okay, I'm in. VERY new to planted tanks, but not as much to photography. My first tank is still settling in. I'll be posting pictures once my tank settles in and starts looking a little better. Need to think about getting some macro equipment now that I have small things worth taking pictures of.
24-105 f/4L IS

So I got this not long ago (by me I mean the wife lol) and I'm clueless how to work it.
I did however want to try my hand at macro shots of my tank. Since I'm novice I figured I try the cheap way an give the 50mm f1.8 on non-AF macro tubes a try. I have the 50mm just figured I buy some tubes of amazon.
Anyone know if they work? Here's the one I was thinking about getting.
Here's the camera I would try it with.

I'd like to join if possible. I got a Canon G15 for my birthday and have loved how easy and the quality of photos it is able to take.
