Review on reversal ring – 58mm Aluminum Lens Reversal Filter Adapter Ring for Canon EOS Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Strong built and simple to use Screw this onto the front of your lens as how you would attach your filters, then mount it up to the body as normal. As with reversing rings, focus has to be done manually.
Cons:
No cons. Simple item that does the job well.
Other:
Do remember to have enough natural light or an external flash to aid you, if not it will appear shaky I used my 28 - 105mm EF Lens. As all EF lens, there is no aperature selection on the lens so it will appear as F00 on your camera, so a minute move in the focusing ring makes a lot of difference. It will take a few shots to get accustomed to the usage of the ring but after that it shouldn't be a problem. Definitely something to get if you intend to buy a macro lens but not sure if you will like it.
Bottomline:
Don't expect this to perform like a macro lens.
