Remember when you're looking through the lens while holding it in your hand image focused by another optical system (your eye) as opposed to an image formed on the camera sensor. Maybe I was clear on using the 4:3 to m4:3 adapter. If you interposed that adapter between your 52mm to 4:3 adapter it would move the lens further away from the sensor and perhaps result in a more useable image that covered the full sensor. In the "old days" reversing adapters were generally used in conjunction with focusing bellows or an extension tube set (three extension tubes of different lengths that could be used individually or stacked to vary the focus.)
