Had my wife's old Cosina 35-70mm zoom lens, the old, manual Apeture ring type, and thought of using it for reverse lens macro. Not a technically good shot, but just to illustrate the magnifying effect to arouse interest. I don't have any reverse ring, so its hand held.

The subject is a diamond ring, and the diamond is about 3mm in diameter. The first 2 pics are un cropped, and the last is cropped to remove the vignetting. All are resized. First one is taken by 6T for reference. The zoom is 12x on FZ10, and the lens, is set to 70mm, infinite focus, and biggest apeture (F3.6). ALL taken with bounced flash.

If possible, will try on insects next! But working distance is only a mere 4cm!!! That will be a challenge! and doing handheld!!!!! Trying to get some accesories to help....

If someone else have tried reverse lens on FZ, please share.... Thanks!

Thanks for the info tchuanye. I have just got my self a 50mm f/1.4 lens from ebay especially for this purpose. I realise vignetting is an issue with these sorts of lenses which is why I went for a really fast lens. I will share the results when I get the lens. By the way I paid $2.75 for it!
Thanks again and I cant wait to see some bugs!

Nice shots but superior results with a tripod.
