TCs ....most wont work even if they fit...

the 100L is a good all around 100 tele - although bigger than a non macro..
has good responsive fast focus..

the non L takes a tamron 1.4x sp opro very very well...
1.4 x working distance...
also fast focus

compared to other macros and most teles
the 180 is not the one.. slow to focus
wait for its replacement maybe with I.S. (we hope)
you could do almost everything
... travel ...general shooting... portraits... macros etc
with 14L II, ....35 or 50mm (or new 40mm) ... and 100L

I prefer the macro to go with 14 II and 35L
you get every bug, every bldg, every face ... and in weak light too...

or 16-35L and 100L ... a complete small kit

100L is VERY useful....and high quality ....tops

adding a set of extension tubes (Kenko) will stretch the close-up abilities....
for your 'droplets' and 'seeds' shots
