but the MT-24 fits right on the MP-E, the 100mm USM, and the EF-S 60mm with no adapters.
Go find one used and either get a pair of Stofens or make your own diffuser as the light that close to the subject gets mighty hot without it. If you're interested in macro, you simply can't beat the coupling of the Twin light with the MP-E...pure magic!
Side note on that 100mm Macro. The new version 2.8 IS USM L has a 67mm circumference. It is a pretty amazing lens in itself with the Hybrid IS and over 50 lpmm at certain F-Stops. if you are planning on the MP-E 65 the MT 24EX then is a must have as Goincarcrazy states. I tried using the MP-E 65 with and without the flash and it just doesn't offer the same ability to exploit the MP-E 65. The 24EX is essential. Get ready to empty your wallet as you will want the Sto-Fen difusers, a macro rail and possibly a Dual Macro Flash Holder to get the flashes off the ring adapter. Don't forget the 58mm UV filter as well -easy to bump into objects and don't want to scratch that lens. Patience and loads of fun! PS the MT 24Ex has an A&B setting for grouping. It can also be a master or a slave along with the 580 EXII as an example so you can have A+B+C and all wireless provided your camera allows.
