teleconverter + macro lens = macro lens

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

Hmm... Doesnt it mean like.. You dont have to move so close to the objecT? as in. 100mm X 1.4 = 140mm?

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."
