    I want to try out this reverse macro method but I'm unsure as to what lens adapter to buy.

    I have the D200 and a 50mm f/1.8 lens. Can I reverse mount this lens? If so, what do I need to buy?

    Thanks

    i took a couple of pics just by holding the lens i front of the camera + mounted lens. if you have enough light, this method will work good enough. see if you like the outcome.. only then consider buying a mount for it
