not a question but anyway: if you have an eos 300d kit you have a powerfull macro lens, the quality of which rivals the mpe-65! when reversed the ef-s 18-55mm becomes a 1x to 4x macro zoom. check out my homemade reverse adapter below, a fraction of the cost of the novoflex. and all you need to carry around are two little rings! [i haven't included the reversing ring that you screw into the front of the lens to mount it on the adapter, i used a modified bodycap glued to a filter with no glass...] check out my images for the results. if you try this i recomend the following settings: diffraction affects image quality as you get towards the 18mm [4x] end. so for 55mm,[1x] f20 gives good sharp images f11 for 35mm f8 for 18mm cheers, aaron.
