Saw a thread some time back about reversing a lens for macro use. Involved some lens disassembly. As I was looking around on ebay, I came across this adapter which would be a simpler process for us less mechanically inclined. Note, this is not my auction, I am just putting this up for folks who have an interest in trying the reverse technique.

Attaching to the camera yes, getting the quality photos we've seen put up on here probably a lot harder than attaching the camera.

yep jim,
it's that easy... if the ring does not fit your lens, use a step up/down ring, about 5usd at any camera shop.

results: fantastic when you get it right. you'll have to teach yourself technique. lens has to be used stopped down, DOF sucks, off cam flash a +, but it's cheap and results will amaze you..

waiting for your pix.
