I also purchased the Canon adapter and while I was not thrilled with the price, I have no regrets. I like to use original equipment if at all affordable and as Eric says, if the adapter adjusts when you zoom in or out, there must be a need.  Less expensive adapters such as the one from Lensmate do not adjust but apparently work okay.  As to the amount of tension on the lens, there is very little and certainly not enough to make the lens retract as it does if the camera is turned on inside a camera case or pocket by mistake. The amount of movement is only about 3/16th of an inch. A bit more information and suggestions in the following thread from a month or so ago that was helpful to me. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52113606
