Wow! This is a perfect opportunity to reiterate how glad I am that I bought my 5DmkII last December. <$2kUSD, and the vendor even threw in a 16G card and a decent Lowepro bag.

If you use flash indoors, then ditch the 50 f/1.4 because it gives you no advantage over other lenses.
Good and inexpensive don't go together in photography
its like saying.. cheap gas
The ends must be parallel to within a few 1/10000 of a inch, which is not your ordinary hacksaw job, so you will need a lathe, or you might get a tilt effect.
As for distance, you typically get a set of three tubes, the length varies by manufacturer, 6, 12, 25mm or 9mm, 16mm, 28mm. etc.
The amount of magnification varies from lens to lens depending on the design. primes are the easiest to use. The tubes come in sets of three so you can vary the magnification.
I tend to agree. I don't suppose they'll ever make the mistake again of creating another lens with the price/performance ratio of the 50mm f/1.4 at <$500USD.
Careful - the Shorty 40 may have it at $200.
Canon need to be a bit easier on their pricing of lenses. If this is going to be another lens at $2200 then I think we'll just all cry
I would like to wait for the mkII but it could be another 12-24 months before Canon release it
So, now you know you need to set Silent Shooting to Disable.
