Although most of you will be bored , anyway I am posting my results of measured magnifications reached by my wide angles reversed on a D600. It could be useful for one or two of you. DX magnifications were result of a simple 1.5x multiplication.

A simple chart with my own measurements of magnifications for some old Nikkors reversed on a D600 (full frame - FX). I used a ruler with a 0.05mm scale as the subject as an easy way to calculate the magnifications
The working distance is from the focused subject to the BR3 ring used as a pseudo-hood.
A little lens porn too
Some of the lenses above when mounted on the D600 for the measurement shots:

UD 20mm f/3.5; 20mm f/2.8 ai-s; NC 28mm f/2; 28mm f/2 ai-s; NC 35mm f/1.4; PC 35mm f/2.8.
All shots handheld, natural light from the window; D7100 + Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K ai'd & CPU'd at f/2.8.
The reversal ring used for all lenses was the BR2a, except for the UD 20/3.5: I used a generic metal ring (72mm). In the back of the lenses there is the BR3 ring which I use as a pseudo-hood and as a protection for the rear lens element.
And the "poor man macro zoom":

Reversed Nikkor 28-50mm f/3.5 ai-s, set at 50mm and infinity focus position.
D7100 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 ai-s hand held, ISO 320, f/2 top, f/2.8 bottom.
Need to find time now for some "real life" test shots.
