Re: Handheld Macro for XT-2

The loss of light is the same with extension tubes or macro lenses.  There actually isn't loss of light, the effective aperture changes, but either way you don't lose light, it is that the marked aperture becomes inaccurate (some modern macro lenses change their EXIF data to show the effective not marked aperture).  The real bind is that tubes are so fiddly and involve swapping them in and out as well as that some lenses don't perform well with extension they were not designed for.
