    The biggest aperture lens i saw was the EF 50mm f1.0L... so big!
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    I believe Watcher was talking about this:

    Scroll down until you see the 50mm f0.75 Rodenstock TV-Heligon

    Just curious, if I choose to use the macro tube, will there be a drop in picture quality since the tube increases the distance of the len to the film/CCD sensor?

    Extension tubes may lead to light falloff, but otherwise affects image quality to a lesser degree than closeup lenses.
