Newbie with a question....

  1. i've seen people posting they use an xx lens with a reversing ring. Just what does that, along with extension tubes do? More specifically if I reverse a 50mm f1.8 lens on my D50 what effect could I expect to achieve?

    You get a magnified image. Magnification would be more than 1:1 (life-size). Adding more extension increases the magnification slightly more.
