a.k.a ordinary table salt :)

I simply did this to test my new macro lens! Conclusion: It takes a lot of patience to achieve decent shots!

thank you :) For that shot, I used Kenko extension tubes (12mm + 24mm + 36mm)

Thats cool. I just got the Canon 100mm f2.8 macro not so long ago and was thinking about getting extension tubes. The Kenko looked very good, and not too expensive compared to Canons.

What kind of magnification will it end up being if you use all three extension tubes on the 100mm macro? Also, how close does it focus with all three tubes?

Hi! You can still use Auto Focus with the extension tubes, but your focus range will be shorter (can't use infinity for example). I know I used Manual Focus because it was easier and faster.

I remember the total magnification was 1.70x if I remember well. I know you can calculate it using a simple formula.

The closest distance you can focus is the original one minus the length of the tubes (72mm).

Kenko tubes are definitely worth the money, for exactly the same quality as the Canon (made in Japan)
