Canon life size converter is just what is says - an additional converter, which makes a Canon 50mm macro lens a 1:1 macro lens, without this converter the lens can only do half life-size macro. Don't know anything about the loupe though.
Lensbaby is a POS (only my very personal humble opinion :lol

Ideally get a real macro lens if you plan to do a lot of macro work. I had extension tubes but they are a bit of work to put on and take off all the time. Also a lens with real time manual focus (where you can do auto and manual focus at the same time without flipping a switch first) would be helpful.
