Help with a reversing ring...
Nov 21, 2012

I just reciently picked up a reversing ring from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0054ENYGE/ref=pe_175190_21431760_3p_M3T1_SC_dp_1

I have been using it with the 18-55mm lens (on the NEX 5n). I've enabled the "release w/o lens and have been able to take photos.

Here are a few questions (for people that use these):

1. is there any way to manually focus without using the zoom (it seems that the zoom may be the only way to focus, but obviuosuly it effects the distance from the object - larger, smaller, etc.)?

2. Depth of field: Is there any way to control the F-stop for greater depth? if the photo is not COMPLETELY flat, there is a great deal of bluring (everything except what has been focused on).

Thanks for the help!!
