You are correct, It is also listed in the 3Ti manual. I have only had my 3Ti
for 6 months and I did not notice the addition.

They may not recommend it but in the handbook for the 4Ti they at
least have a chart of the mag ratios you would get with the 90mm f2 +
65-116 auto tube... 0.72x - 1.72x.
For that matter the chart does not 'recommend' the use of the auto
tube with the 50mm f2/3.5 either. Using any of these lenses with the
Atube is classed as the 'composite' method wheras using the Atube and
the macro lenses that require extension is called the 'professional'
