this is about a 50% crop shot from about 30" with a DRebel / 28-135IS and extension tube.

thanks for posting this one, it gives me an Idea how good the macro lens for the rebel is. I really want to get one.

My Pleasure,

It's the extension tube that makes the difference I think. I'll shoot something with the kit lens and a tube tonight or tomorrow so you can see what the kit lens can do, you might be surprised. I bought a set of 3 tubes for $110. They increase magnification slightly and allow very close focusing.

UPDATE: sorry I just discovered that my ext tube are EF mount only and won't work with EFs lenses such as the 18-55 EF-s. No sample forthcoming. Canon does now make tubes that will accept both EF and EF-s lenses but mine are cheap 3rd party tubes.
