These are cropped slightly too!
I'm using a proper reverse mount adapter, which is quite thin so I guess your custom made one holds the lense slightly further away from the body giving more magnification.
I should get my extension tubes soon which will give me even more magnification :-)

I just had a play and the macro extension tubes with a lens reversed gives quite good magnification. Only one problem I have seen so far with reversing rings, Lens flare because there is no hood.

Crash

a good try

i like doing the reverse thing too

you can reverse it onto another lens too which will make it bigger

another thing to be wary of is scratching the rear element

if you do the lens is of little use anymore

Nice pics Robar

I thought i would see what the 50-200 would do with just a Sigma acrhomatic filter on the front......these were cropped a lil too and i was happy to be able to keep a good distance away as i hate the damn things!

let me set it up and i'll post later.

crash, you can make an adapter with a rear lens cap so you can attach accessories.
