I am looking at buying a 7D that comes with the 50mm 1.7 prime lens and I was wondering if anyone had tried this setup with extension tubes and whether or not it works - and works well for macro. I have no experience using digital SLR's with extension tubes and to be honest I don't know if they work the same way as with my 700si given that there is a 1.5 multiplier factor with the small sensor. Thx.

The 5D and 7D do not come with the 50mm 1.7, they only come with zooms. You can pick up a clean 50 1.7 for around $50. This thread covers the extention tubes.
