    Default Teleconverter + Macro lens = ?

    What happens, or what will be the effect if I mount a teleconverter (not macro converter) together with a macro lens?

    teleconverter + macro lens = macro lens

    It will still be a macro lens, but the object is magnified even bigger.

    more information could be hunted here

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macro_photography

    "Attaching a telephoto extender between the camera body and the lens. A 1.4 or 2 teleconverter gives a larger image, adding macro capabilities. As with an extension tube, less light will reach the film or sensor, and a longer exposure time will be needed. However, working distance remains the same as without the teleconverter."
