The 50mm 1.8 would be a good lens to reverse and you should get some great results from it. The big problem with some of the older/newer lenses is that they were made for Auto 35mm cameras and the mechanical linkage in the camera stopped the aperture down. You have to make sure that you can manually stop the aperture down when the lens is reversed.

The best way of doing this would be to get an adapter which has the Olympus fit and another system, it would not matter what that fit was as you are only interested in the Olympus fit part.

The aperture is stopped down by turning a ring on the adapter. For exposure you may be able to set the camera on auto speed and when the aperture is set on the lens the camera may set a speed to suite.
When using flash if you have a auto f/gun you can reduce the output of the gun to say ľ and select in the case of the Canon the `P` setting. I normally play around with the `F` setting until I get the results I am looking for.

On reverse lens methods there is no focusing from the lens, the whole camera and lens is moved backward and forward to achieve focus. Itís a bugger to get right at first but it gets easier with practise.
Try a search on Thomas Shahan Some of the best reversed lens capturers you will see. Looking forward to seeing your results. I have more macro capturers on JohnT2012 on the FlickR site

nice one. i am using an olympus e410. looks like i will have to source an auto set of tubes to get the aperture working correctly then. i have an old zuiko 1.8 l50mm i was going to reverse to try out as the reversing ring is cheap. ebay here i come.

Hi Mike, this capture was taken with a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens in FD mount reversed onto the camera and 2 extension tubes fitted. The aperture is controlled by a FD-EOS converter.

Not sure which camera you have but if it has an electronic focusing lens fitted to it then you would need to get a set of extension tubes which work with the electronics of the camera.
If you attach a non auto set of tubes to the camera then the lens can only be used at full aperture as there is no way to stop the lens down.

The same is true of trying to reverse an electronic lens onto the camera. On the cost front I have seen auto tubes advertised for around £60 new on EBay. In the case of Canon I think they are around the £200+ mark.

The lens that took this capture was a successful bid on EBay and I got it for £20. The reversing ring was £5 and a set of tubes were around the £8 mark. You would also need an adaptor to manually stop down and open the aperture which is a FD-EOS converter they cost around £5 for the macro version. Basically they are rubbish but ideal for this job.
I have dedicated Macro lenses but this outfit can produce some very good results.

My last capture 1720 was taken with a 30year old lens converted to EOS mount. This was another successful bid on EBay and I got it for £80. Old glass in sort after makes is becoming scarce because in many cases they are as good if not better than the modern equivalents for the fraction of the cost.

Cheers thanxs Dave.

An amateur compared to you guys but playing with a new Cannon S100 still need to learn all it's functions, then the pics might be better.
Also reloaded the pics to Flicr I see you guy's say it's sharper then.

I have a Nikon D40 too, the 35mm 1.8 AFS is a fantastic lens for trophy shots. You can keep the fish nice and focussed and throw the background into blur with a shallow DOF. As said, due to the crop sensor the 35mm will basically act as a 50mm. Well worth the money

Compatibility chart

AF-S will give you autofocus. I think you may have been a bit confused by what you had read (post 1704), the focus won't change, it is the effective field of view that changes because of the sensor size difference between your camera and a full frame (or 35mm film) camera. Google 'crop factor', there are plenty of good articles on this subject.

A little bit pricey unfortunately. I wouldn't use it anything like enough to warrant spending that on one. Perhaps I'll look into selling my camera and getting a replacement that will do what I want it to.

Seems silly to do that just so I can use a different lens, but some of the shots I've seem with nifty50's are just incredible.
