This is a nifty little accessory to add to your gear collection. I use it with the 50/1.8 and it makes a neat little macro setup. Be advised that when using a reverse ring you get no metering and no focus control. This really isn't a big deal because you just move the camera and take some test shots.

The DOF with this ring is SUPER thin, so you will learn to use it to your advantage, but it takes patience.

I only gave this ring 3 stars because I thought that the threading didn't make me feel too confident that it was securely on my lens and made me somewhat nervous. I still use the ring and still like it, but I always hold on to the lens and camera while walking when this ring is on.

This is the handiest little ring. I use it with my old 50/1.8 lens and it allows me to achieve amazing macro photos.

Note, the DOF is really shallow and it works best if you use it with a rail system.

I picked this up after experimenting with reversed lens macro the old fashion way and just holding my lens on backwards. I also picked up the Nikon 50mm F1.8 since it has an aperture ring instead of trying to hold the little lever. The ring fits the camera well (took one or two times on and off to get it to go on nice) and I didn't realize at first that it would actually lock into the camera, but now that it's all worked in I feel pretty secure with the setup, it doesn't seem like it's going to fall off or anything.

I've learned my flash likes to be at 1/64 power on manual to get well lit shots at F8 iso200, 1/100sec (obviously if I was outside on a bright day I'd probably have to play with the settings again, but I've been using it indoors), once you dial in your settings taking pictures is really quick, focusing isn't an issue once you get the hang of it unless you go to 1.8 or something, at F8 the DOF is decent to work with.

My 50mm gives around 1:1 macro according to the included chart and works very well. When I need to go in closer the 35mm F1.8 goes a lot closer but requires using the aperture lever so your always just guessing where you are (and after a bit you get pretty used to that). Compared to an actual macro lens this thing is dirt cheap and gives a lot more flexibility since switching lenses switches the macro ratio. The only issue I have is my 35mm doesn't screw on as securely as any of my other lenses, but it is pretty light so I'm not too worried.

I got this to use on my D90 with an old 50mm Series-E 1.8 manual lens that was handed down to me. The lens was full manual anyway so I wasn't losing any functionality by flipping it.

The ring: The ring is solid metal and very sturdy feeling. Whether you trust hanging the weight of your lens off of your camera by the strength of the filter threads alone is up to your own anxiety level. For me, hanging an old, free, and light weight lens off it doesn't bother me at all.

Results: well the ring "just works" for me. Photographic results come down to the lens you use and your technique. For me I find that using this with my old 50mm lens works much better than using a set of close-up filters on my 18-105mm kit lens for not much more money.

Recommendations: I would get the BR-3 ring to go with this so you can put a filter over the back end of your lens once you've flipped it around. You'll be working pretty close to your subject and it could easily be bumped against the lens. As others have hinted, it's very helpful to use a lens with a manual aperture ring on it. What I do is open the aperture wide enough to see my subject and get a feel for the focus and depth of field. Then I crank the f-stop to 8+ (depending on light availability) to widen the depth of field. Bright Sun or a flash will help you push your f-stop further. Without TTL metering, you'll have to set your flash manually. Also you had better know your way around your camera settings since you'll be in Full Manual (M) mode to use this.

This ring is great for macro photography! Recently I was able to shot the tiny snowflakes in Colorado with it. I definately recommend a rail system though. Be careful though, your lense can unscrew when adjusting the focal length

Great product for anyone looking to get into macrophotography without spending lots of money on a new lens. Although this adapter accepts lenses with a 52mm filter thread, I also bought the Fotodiox 7 Metal Step Down Ring Set to go with other various lenses I have and they work well together, though obviously it might take some fiddling with to get the different rings on and off.

However, this adapter is great for the price, considering you can use the kit lenses that come with most cameras to start doing macro. You do have to take care when changing focus or focal length on the lens, as you could unscrew the lens from the adapter, but that's just the nature of the beast. As you can see in the image I uploaded, depth of field is pretty shallow, and the closest focusing distance for a 50mm f/1.8 is about 4.5 inches. You also have to shoot in manual or shutter priority mode, but shooting manually is a good way of challenging yourself if you're a newer photographer to think more about how you shoot and not just letting the camera decide things for you.

Another plus is you can use any brand lens, included those with functional aperture rings (which most digital lenses now lack) to gain more control over your shots. I've gotten really great shots using a 30+ year old Canon 24mm lens I learned to shoot film with.
