I've read about it but never tried it.

My dad uses an old 50mm prime lens upside down (like a loupe, sort of) to look at slides on a light box, and so it definitely seems like it could work.

Cool! A lot of people usually reverse a 50/1.8 or something like that, don't usually see a reversed zoom.

yes you can do it. have fun trying to hold the lens, move it, push the camera buttons, move the camera to focus...

it's easier to just buy a set of kenko extension tubes and do it that way. they are like $50 for all three.

:lol: flipMarc, you made me read tagalog (which I just noticed that I havent in a long ass time).

Well I got an adapter before I bought my true macro lens. Haven't used the adapter since.

Here's a few samples when I was shooting with it.
Minolta AF 70-210/4 with reversed MF 50/1.7

AF 75-300 with reversed MF 50/1.7


with my Tamron 90/2.8


Honestly, if you dont have access or resources to have a Macro lens, the reverse adapter is worth it as it challenges you more with a different perspective in photography. But as Anus! already mentioned, same goes with Kenko extension tubes. The whole process of taking macro with a reversed is very tedious and requires a lot of skills, which are more like patience, steady hands while stabilizing the camera and manually focusing your lens, and all other setting changes in camera.

^^^ Nice, that's cool that those are yours, and out of all the discussion you have actually done it :yesway:

This is one that my dad took this summer, it was the Panasonic SLR (nromally comes with a Leica kit lens but this was with a Zeiss macro, 60mm I htink with a 2:1 (or is it considered 1:2?) ratio. Not "true" macro I guess (1:1) but still a neat dedicated lens and a lot more useable for things like flowers and etc. Anyhow, I really like it, figured it was appropriate to put up:
