    i believe u are talking abt nickmak's way. his way only works for canon EF mount, not for the others. that's how they force the aperture to stay in that aperture as they use electronics on the lens to stopdown the aperture

    denniskee actually have tried using 2 extension tubes and wires between the 2 ext tubes on his canon cam to mimic the reversing electronic connector

    Buy a Canon MPE-65, a true Macro lens.
    It starts from 1:1 to 5:1.

    i understand must do manual focusing... is it manual focus on the lens ring or manual focus by shifting the tripod back and fro? in other words, with lens reversed, can i fixed the tipod at one place and using the ring on the lens to do manual focus?

    how about the aperture setting? since lens not connected to computer chip, how is the aperture setting on a reversed lens done?

    thanks in advance
    Focusing? You move your camera towards or away from the object until it is sharp.

    What'e the difference between macro-econimics and micro-economics? Following that analogy, I think people who used the terms micro and macro just sees things in a different way..

    So what is it? Do I shoot small things? (Micro) or do I make things look big? (Macro)

    for ya sigma apo macro.....leave it at normal and the focusing will not be as close if i am not wrong...if u already own it jzu experiment lo....

    Nikon has specialized Micro lenses (for shooting small things?) or Nikon's ordinary lenses which can focus closer has a Macro mode (for making things larger?)
