Yes, check the respective cam product catalog. :dunno:

You can reverse mount your 50mm etc

YMMV

Buy a macro lens. Otherwise reverse mount 50mm as what longkangman has said. For serious macro, its best to save and buy one. I recommend the 90mm Tamron for a start. Cheap and Quality at $560.

For reversal ring, you can search for either PPCP or PQ23 I think they have it. Cheaper third party. For nikon, you can get the BR-2A for reversing 52mm filter thread lens.

There is. There are 2 ways to use reverse lens. Direct (inverse 50mm lens), or put inverse lens on front of lens. I prefer the second method one.

But, both method can not beat the real macro/micro lens photo's quality. Only the magnification can be bigger than 1:1.

Arto.

yes. It means that the "reversed" lens' cpu ring is exposed to the outside. So the reverse ring has a thread that fits the front of your lens (where you have a uv filter on now) as well as a mount to mount it onto your body.

Here's my advise. Dont get it. I had one last time. Used it a couple of times as it was just too troublesome to use. Just got my Sigma 105mm today :thumbsup: ;)
