I shoot Pentax, so I'm not familiar with your specific lenses.  In general, the 28, 45, and 50mm lenses will all work when reversed.  But, what you want is a lens with an aperture ring that opens and closes the diaphragm as you rotate the ring.  Otherwise, you'll always be shooting through the lens at it's largest aperture regardless of where the aperture ring is set, and that will result in an extremely narrow or shallow depth of field.
