50mm f/1.8 D reversed on 70-300 VR for macro?
May 27, 2009

I have been kicking around the idea of picking up one of the inexpensive, short primes. Turns out a buddy has a 50mm 1.8 D that he has barely ever used and says he doesn't intend to start, so he is gifting it to me. Cool!

Since this bugger has a real aperture ring on it, I got to wondering if it would be worthwhile trying to rig it reversed on the end of my 70-300 vr for macro. (Or my 18-105, for that matter.)

Can anyone offer some ideas on how well this might work in practice?
