I still haven't received my M42 to EF lens mount adapter, so I decided to try some of the old "turn the lens around" macro shots. It worked pretty well. :thumbup: Since it's a manual lens, I can control aperture even with the lens facing the wrong way. It's a big help! I learned that you need a lot of light for good macro shots (or a camera with good high-ISO performance). These were taken with a Mamiya 55mm f/2 lens. I don't know the f/# for each picture. #1 - "Caught" #2 - "Curves" #3 - "Sprouts" *EDIT* Here's two more: #4 - "Hang in there" #5 - "Dead, but beautiful"
