How do I use a CLS clip with a lense on my 1000d

At the moment I cant use my standard lens with my light poloution filter as the lense burrows deep into the camera body. Is there a way of doing this is there an adapter that will allow this?.

Thanks

Hi fella

I have one of these, and the short answer is "no, you cant"

it doesnt work with EFS lenses, i have to use my 200mm becuase of the extra fitting part on the back of the 55mm lens

sorry to be the bearer of bad news !!

As Duncan said and as mentioned on the Astonomik website, the EOS clip filters can't be used with Canon's EF-S range of lenses, only their EF lenses. You can probably use it with 3rd party Canon-compatible lenses like Sigma, Tokina, Tamron etc as long as they don't protrude into the camera body like the EF-S ones do.

You could possibly use a short extension tube like a 12mm one, but for normal photography it would be pretty useless. Extension tubes shorten the focus distance, so you'd lose infinity focus and depending on what focal length your lens is, you may not be able to focus any further that a couple of metres. So it could be done, but wouldn't recommend it as it'd be next to useless.
