A macro extension tube is a wonderful substitution for the expensive macro lens. The lens transforms into a macro lens while maintaining its optical quality. By placing distance between your camera body and lens, focusing distance is shortened and the effect of magnifying your subject is created. Fotodiox Pro Auto Macro Extension Tube for Canon EOS is an automatic tube that is able to communicate all electronic functions from the lens to camera including autofocus and auto-exposure. No other optical components are added, so the image will preserve the original optical properties of the lens.
Compatible Cameras (including, but not limited to): 1d/1ds, Mark II, III, IV, X, C, 5D, 5D Mark II/III 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 60Da, Rebel xt, xti, xs, xsi, t1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D

These have a great fit and finish, they have contacts for aperture control and are constructed of all metal, unlike the Kenko option which are made of plastic. I like they that they are made in the USA, and are a fraction of the price of other options from Kenko and Canon. They also sell a set of 3 for $60 if you want to save $15. So far I have had a good experience with Fotodiox products.
I bought this on the strength of Fotodiox's excellent Nikkor/EOS adapters. It feels like a solid piece of kit and does what it's supposed to do, but just a little scarily. Rotating a lens into place on the extender, the electrical contacts complain just a bit before the pieces come to rest (not quite "snapping") in the correct position. It may be solid, but the tactile feedback is a little off. The first few times I tried to use a Canon AF IS lens on the extension tube, the camera (EOS 6D) balked with an ER01 (bad electrical connection) error. So I got out a magnifying hood (the sort of thing one might use for close-up jewelry work) and saw that there was some film or plastic detritus covering some of the contacts on the side of the extension tube that mates with the camera. I cleaned these with a dental pick and polished them using a bit of typing paper and finger pressure until they were shiny and clean. After that... so far, so good through several mounts/dismounts.

Really used this today. It served its purpose well but sometimes it lost autofocus, I simply took the lens and extension tube off put it back on and autofocus worked again. I took a star off because of this and because the extension tube does not come with any lens caps to protect it when you're not using it. All it came in was plastic wrapping in a box. Including lens caps would help protect the lens contacts from getting damaged and the manufacturer should include this. Today, I used this extension tube with a canon 18-55mm EF-S lens.
