    Extension tube allows you to focus closer to your subject and hence increase the magnification. The longer the tube, the greater the magnification. Since there is no glass in between your lens and camera body, the image quality will not compromise. However, the minimum and maximum focusing distance are quite limited compare to a dedicated macro lens.

    Hope this helps.

    Its difficult to take macro using extensions tubes due to the lost of light when the tube is attached.

    There are alternatives like Raynox 250 which can fit into a 50mm and it is getting popular in this forum nowadays.

    I am thinking of getting one.
