Thanks for replying.

u mean for macro shots? would this method be better than
using macro lens and close up filters?

the SLR lens in the photo is not a regular lens?
Thanks

if you use a reversed 50mm lens on a 100mm lens like G2 , it can give about 2:1 magnification ...

The photo shows a Oly 50mm SLR lens. What I meant is that you can't attach regular SLR lenses onto a consumer digicam and use it "normally" like an SLR. This setup is more for macro shots.
