    err.. my tele convertor has to be between the lens and body...

    It is either
    1) Lens-> ext tube-> TC-> body
    or
    2)Lens-> TC-> ext tube-> body

    actually it was an answer, not a guess. It does make more sense too.

    I was wondering, if you already have the TC and ext tube, why don't you try it out? Don't have to wonder about the answer what.

    ok lah my bad. I was just trying to say that by common sense, number two is apparently the better choice. Anyway I've tried number two and it worked.

    simpler english: extension tube works by enlarging the image circle of your lens projected on the film plane, hence it's macro + light loss + focus limited. hence u shd mount it on the body since it affects the film plane.

    tc works by magnifying the image of the lens, but only works in more or less fixed position, hence it must be mounted immed behind the lens.

    what was so hard to understand?

    sigh... nvm.. since tweek has verified the combi...

    Supposing I used one of the more 'uncommon' films.. eg 1600, 50 etc and sent it to my neighbourhood shop, would it make a very big difference than if I sent it to a colour lab or something like that?

    Anybody knows?
