    Just wondering if anyone has tried their Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro with
    extension tubes? I am finding 1:1 a little boring and would like to
    get more magnification.

    I have Oly extension tubes that I use on my Canon with pretty good
    results, but my Oly lenses are not really suited to macro.... so I was
    about to get a macro Oly lens, but just had the thought that maybe EF
    mount tubes for the Tamron would be a better option.

    Samples would be great if you got 'em.

    Seemingly the Tamron macro lens is up there with a Canon 100mm macro
    lens. This has not been my experience using a 10D and 20D. Alan Browne
    claimed I was as many here think, unable to tell the difference and I
    was just pouring crap on Tamron for the sake of it. You choose which
    to believe.

    If you are one of Photo Continental's "registered Pro Photographers"
    you can trot on up and actually use their back room studio to sample
    the lens with (I presume) tubes alongside the Canon lens and decide
    for yourself. You'll might have to make an appointment and you'll
    definitely need to have a demonstrated history of buying from them but
    you probably know all that.

    It's bound to be better than any "advise" you'll get here.
