    I ordered a reverse ring a while back, recieved it today, it fits the mount on the camera but i can't attach my lens reversed to it because my lens is bigger :/ i made sure i ordered the 58mm but it's too small. Boy am i pissed.

    Now i'm thinking of getting this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=280310078309 just to be sure, do you think this will fit my camera?

    I have a Canon EOS 450d 18-55mm lens.

    the 18-55 has 58mm filter size, i dont get why it wouldn't work. are you sure you ordered a 58mm reverse ring?

    I ordered exactly that, i don't understand why it hasn't fitted with the lens backwards, the reverse ring fits onto the mount perfectly but i can't screw my lens onto the reverse ring.

    What size is it? I have a 67mm-58mm adapter sitting here useless, If anyone wants it let me know

    Edit: woops it would go the wrong way, it is for using 58mm shit on a 67mm thread, kinda useless I suppose

    Measure the reverse ring to make sure they gave you the right one? If it doesn't fit, chances are they sent out the wrong one :dunno:

    Let me know what size it is...I might be interested in it. That is if you dont want it or can't use it.

    It fits the mount perfectly but the ring outside that is supposed to fit my lens isn't right, i think the retards made it wrong or either i'm daft.

    I think i need to post pictures to explain wtf i'm saying.

    well it's going to fit the mount every time since that's a standardized size for canon. i think we all understand what you're getting at but maybe you're not putting the filter on properly.

    Trust me, the end of the lens is too big for the reverse ring. It wont screw on.
