using reversed 50mm 1.4 for macro on k10d
Sep 26, 2007

I read somewhere on the web about using 50mm in ‘reverse mode’ for macro shots. This morning before work just out of curiosity I have turned around the lens and while holding the camera against the front of the lens (UV filter) took a couple of shots… wow!! It works extremely well!! I thought about getting 100mm macro but with these result I am convinced that it’s enough for me for now, just to play around.

So here is my question. What do you call a ring or some kind of a mount to keep the reversed lens attached to the body? I don’t even know how to start searching on ebay for it. Any hints will be greatly appreciated.
