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.

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 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.

Works great, solid build, and saves $$$!

By

from Polson, MT  -  Semi-Professional

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!

Best Money Spent On Gear This Year

By

from Athens, Ohio  -  Semi-Professional

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.

Poor man's macro maker

By

from Santa Barbara, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.

Well Made and Works Well

By

from Tampa, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.

Works very well

By

from Boca Raton, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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 :-)

Sturdy reversing ring

By

from Rygge, Norway  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LESZEK V  Using in conjunction with my 24mm.
Shopper  Will this work with a Nikon D7000 without damage to camera contacts?
JEFFREY W  I do not have the D7000, so take this into consideration. I have used the BR-2A on a D200 and D300s, flawslessly. It is my understanding that the Nikon lens mount has not changed in many years. I considered other reversing rings, but am happy that I went with Nikon, it is a robust and a well built piece of equipment. It performed just as advertised.
Shopper  Part Number for a reversing ring for stacking lenses?
JACQUELINE B  I use this reversing ring on a 24mm Sigma my brother gave me. You can use any 52mm lens, but they say it is better to have a wide angle. It is not that easy to use, having almost no DOF. But it is worth trying it, and play with it. Hope that helps, Jacqueline
