    It simply reduces the mimimum focus distance...thats mean u go nearer to the object. So when u go nearer to shoot ur object becomes bigger loh!

    a 50mm lens need a 50mm extension to reach 1:1 magnification
    Think should be a ratio calculation...let other experts enlighten u..keke

    1 more question: does extension tubes affect the amount of light entering the lens?

    I guess not, but since light travels a longer distance in the lens, the light quality is somehow affected.
