Thanks David
I think I did read something about the blurring problem on a forum linked to my research on adaptors. Appeared to be how the adaptor was fitted to the camera. If I can find the link I will let you know about it.
On a different topic check out this web page. www.thomasshahan.com, sorry canít do links.
This guy produces world class shots using the reversed lens technique on equipment that most people would consign to the bin.
He shoots a number of shots of live subjects in the field and slightly alters the focusing point for each shot and them layer stacks them.
There is an article in the November issue of Digital SLR photography which outlines his approach.

Still got all my old FD lenses , i did get a converter to use them on my Nikon D5000.
My 28mm f/2.8 and 70-210 works ok though had to go Manual without any metering.
Pity the main lens i wanted to use my 50mm f/1.8 produces blurred shots, think this is something to do with the distance between compositing lens and the sensor.
You should get much better results though converting to your EOS

Finally decided to go down the Macro route. On its way is a Canon FD 35-70 Macro Zoom. Not wanting to spend shedloads of money I have opted for the later FD version with a top quality convertor to attach to my EOS.
I can live with manual focusing and using in aperture priority mode as this is how I take close ups anyway
Will be interesting to see if it was £90 well spent
