    Hi
    I just bought 52mm lens coupling ring and I decided to try some extreme macro shoots.
    I installed my 55-200mm vr on camera (zoomed it to 200mm) and I put my 50mm fully open (f/1.8) reversed.
    It is pretty difficult to get sharp image, DOF is extremally narrow but take a look:

    This is Nikon lens cap (52mm)

    And this is print - font no10

    I was quite impressed whan I saw it on computer
    I need to try some dead bugs soon :D

    They were. :D I used built in flash.
    I was focusing by moving from and to the subject. You need to get really close with this lenses.

    That is really cool! I've never heard of hooking two lenses together like that before.

    Very VERY cool. I am definitely going to give that a try. I need to get a reverser ring, I'd imagine that would work pretty well at the wide end of my 18-55, yes?

    I'm not sure about your 18-55mm and reversing ring to be honest because I didn't try it with mine. Bus you should give it a go and see yourself.
    Get 50mm f1.8 and coupling ring and screw it on top of yout 55-200mm. This will give you great effect.
    Good luck
