The only Canon 50 mm "macro" lens was a 1:2 (half life size) not a 1:1. To make it a real macro lens, you had to buy an adapter that cost almost as much as the lens. To me, this combination doesn't count as a 50 macro lens.

... especially as the adapter is actually a teleconverter, so the focal length with the adapter is more than 50 mm.
