I am just getting into macro. I have a Canon 100mm 2.8 and looking to get a flash bracket. I also have a Canon 1.4 TC but it does not work with my lens. Can someone recommend some tubes? Are the Kenkos worth looking into? Really looking at an MPE-65 just really nervous having just got into macro. I certainly think I need a flash bracket and some mini ball heads to try and get started.
Having just acquired the MP-E myself I think it would be a very poor choice for someone just delving into this type of photography. As for TCs/Tubes, any non-Canon TC will mount on the 100 and yes, Kenko tubes might be worth looking into if you decide you're ready for higher mags. That said, and as you've hinted above, your primary focus should be on lighting at this point, IMO. You should be able to gather plenty of ideas digging through this thread alone
