Since I have seen lenses in addition to the 50mm here, how about this?

My first focus stack! 7 images. Reversed Series E 28/2.8 @ f/5.6 in front of a PK13 (27.5mm) extension tube which yields a magnification of 2.6:1. This is a vertical crop of a horizontal image, about 30%

D7000

Daddy long legs... At its widest, the body is about 4mm across.

So the K tubes work on current DSLRs? Man, I wish I would have known that a while ago... I could have bought 4 sets of them for $50.

Great shot Peter.

Kevin,

they work, as in they "mount" - no aperture support nor any of the new-fangled electrical connections. You focus, you stop down, you shoot manual. The reason I bought my set \was the K1 ring, because you can use that with really wide lenses such as the 20mm - it is the thinnest ring around and many of the K ring sets are missing the K1. I paid $10 with leather pouch, but you see these offered at over $100 sometimes.

The overall set not long enough for my needs, so I may be looking for a few more extensions.

Thanks for the info. I am going to try and track down that guy that had the 4 sets. They were all complete. I want to get the rest of the PKs and the PN11.

More than likely it is a 52mm reversing ring. Personally, spend the extra bucks and pick up a Nikon BR2 reversing ring. Its a brass ring and the odds of it getting stuck because of thermal expansion is very slim compared to the aluminum ones you find on eBay. It is a work of art and built like a tank. Will last a couple lifetimes. Now, keep in mind that the G lenses do not have an aperture ring, so you will need to find some other way to work the aperture once the lens is reversed. You will need a Nikon "D" lens or older (that is if you wish to stick with Nikon).

I was told that if you set aperture with lens on properly and then reverse, it retains that setting, have not tried it though. I do have an older 50 mm as well.

From what I have seen, there is a spring in the aperture mechanism that will open the aperture all the way or close it all the way down (don't remember which way). You can try it by setting an aperture setting and removing the lens.

Works great. Attach lens, select the aperture you want, hold the DOF button, and turn off the camera. The lens will hold the aperture and you can then reverse it.

So, I received a reversing ring in the mail a few days ago and have had two shoots with it thus far. Below is an image I took during the second shoot.

The spider was about 1-2mm in length! I had my kit lens reversed and set at 18mm, which gets really, really close.







Julian

P.S. As you may have noticed, the DOF at 18mm is VERY shallow.

Thank you so much for that, I have been dying to get into macro and didn't realize it could be done so inexpensively.
