Hi,

I have a sigma 150mm macro and just got a 50mm 1.8 to reverse on my sigma.

Is the ring in the link below the right ring to connect the 52 diameter 50mm lens in reverse to my 72 diameter sigma 150mm?

Would I need anything else?

And a bit off topic, but my 50mm is really hard to connect disconnect to my camera. Is this a know issue with the nikon 50mm 1.8?

Thanks

yip, looks like what you want, you might want a flash to allow you to get enough light to use a decent aperture.

hope this helps.

ps. what sort of magnification is the 150mm and reversed 50mm going to give you?

I already have a flash waiting:)

I believe this setup will give me a 3:1 magnification.

Thanks for your help!
