    Got a reversing ring for my D80 and started playing with it today. I used my 50mm f/1.8 Nikkor.

    #1 - For a reference scale, my fingertip is about...mmm...ohh... 9/16" wide

    I used to 50mm because I could adjust the aperture ring. The shots coming out of the 18-55 & 55-200 just seemed so underexposed and could not set aperture. Built-in flash or SB-600 doesn't work. Suggestions? Tripod with longer shutter speed?

    Thanks Alex. This was before I knew how to properly add an image inside a thread.

    Very nice. I need to get acquainted with my 100mm macro with my 50mm reversed in front of it.
