    Do you mean by reversing the 50mm onto the 18-200?

    I don't recommand that.

    You can just reverse the 50mm onto your camera with adpator and start shoot macro.

    Yes, 50mm on 18-200.
    so if i reverse the 50mm with a adaptor, will the min focus of the lens change too?
    as the min focus dist for the 50mm is 0.45m, will it become closer? i.e 0.45m and less.

    thanks.
