Excellent quality, but has it's limits
I bought this specifically to mount on my 50mm f/1.8 nikkor. It takes a little getting used to at first since the working distance is less than a few inches and you MUST use a flash if you are in any environment short of a sunny day. The images turn out great with a large depth of field (>f16). The only drawback of it that cannot be helped if using a prime is the lack of focus adjustment. With a real macro, you can control how far away your subject is and focus on it, but with the reversal ri...View full Review

With a real macro, you can control how far away your subject is and focus on it, but with the reversal ring, you can only crop your shot at a single magnification. Also, if you screw the ring on tight enough (but not too tight!) to the lens, you will not have any issues with it falling off.

Does not lock in
The BR2A screws into the lens without any problem but it does not lock in to the camera body and the lens wants to fall off the camera when I try to focus or change the aperture.

I use with a 50mm lens for macro photos of bugs. it works smoothly to put on and off. Love the comments from people that something is wrong with the lens on my camera LOL.
Super solid build, and attached to the front of my 50mm with no difficulty. Quality of the reverse lens macro shots were excellent. If you want to experiment with macro w/o paying a small fortune for the lens - I highly recommend this product!
I use it to flip my Nikkor 50 for macro work. For the money it is a great tool! 4 inches from lens seems to be perfect focus. Use a tripod and have your lens set to f22. So. Much. Fun. I was worried that this was just a gimmick, but I am sold on this as a very inexpensive macro setup.
This is an inexpensive way to get good macros on a Nikon. It produces surprisingly good results (see my images) It's very well made and I am not concerned that my reversed lens will fall off anytime while I am making the shot. You do suffer from the issue of loosing considerable f-stops of light (that's true even if you use bellows), but nothing that a steady hand, tripod or long exposure can't fix.
I use this on my D90 with my 50mm lens and works great
Just got the reverse ring and it works great put it on my 50mm lens
It mount easily and securely on both the body and lens. The ring is well-made. Not a fancy piece of gear, but it opened up the world of macro photography for just a small amount of money.
It's made of metal (not plastic) and connects beautifully and solidly to the camera and the lens. Too bad it can't preserve AF :-)
Great magnification on short lenses. Be sure that you have an aperture ring on your lens, otherwise you won't be able to adjust the aperture easily. The BR-2A feels solid and durable, but similar non-brand products can be found a lot cheaper.
it's a ring so thankfully it's round--what can i say
