    I have a Canon EF Macro 180 mm L and a Canon EF 50mm 1,8 II

    the 2 following photos are taken with my EF 50mm + kenko tube 12 mm :

    I have tried to compare a few shots between the 180 mm and the 50mm + kenko tube ... for sharpness and transparency I cannot see the difference

    the only one I can see but VERY WELL are the 1300 euros !!

    50 mm + kenko 12mm = MAXIMUM 120 euros
    180mm = 1500 euros


    ... if it can help

    I use kenko tubes with a 50mm f/1.8 as well. I find the quality to be excellent, but the working distance is sometimes limited. I've considered the 180mm macro for shooting insects.

    I cannot say anything against the 180 mm I love it even for landscape or portrait
    but the price is hight and kenko tubes are a good solution
