Canon 24-70 with extension tube? - Photography

Anyone here used a Canon 24-70 with a Canon extension tube? I got this lens the other day before I realised that it had a macro setting - what a pleasant surprise. Anyway, in order to get closer I was thinking of getting a Canon extension tube before purchasing a dedicated macro lens. Has anyone here tried this combination - either an EF12 or EF25? Cheers and regards Poch...

    I use Kenko extension tubes with a 28-70/2.8. Absolutely no problems with this
    lens (or any other EF lens I own). The working distance can be quite small,
    especially at the wide end, but this is expected. You can buy the Canon tubes,
    but most people, including me, would say that they are not a good value for what
    you get. There is no glass in extension tubes. Kenkos work perfectly, and you
    get a whole set of 3 tubes for the price of 1 Canon tube.

    Hi,

    I have used the 28-70 with extension tubes and they work really well, the
    24-70 is practically the same lens. I use non canon tubes, but as there are
    no optics see not reason as to why there would be any difference between
    these and the Canon ones.

    Have fun with it !.
