Re: Reverse mount macro

I have tried it too without an adapter, just with the lens reversed and hand held. That worked surprisingly decent but was far from being really nice. I (and my family) finally didn't have the time to elaborate the experiment.
My kit lens was in use.

I tried it with an old 50mm prime too and I couldn't get anything but total craps out of it. The subject was unusable unsharp (I tried it with static subjects as well). No any positive change with adjusting the manual focus or the aperture or moving the camera closer to the subject.
I wonder why. Any clues?
