hi there, i'm new to this site, and new to canon's 300d... i recently got the 300d and it has taken over my life... had it for just over one month, took nearly 3000 photo's, and now it's off getting fixed... just wouldn't turn on one day. just wondering if anyone has some tips for macro shooting techniques. i can't afford the mpe-65, but have found the 18-55 efs to be pretty damn good when reversed [see my pics], i have a home made reverse adapter to preserve lens contacts... i can recommend making the effort to make up an adapter [i used a 13mm marumi extension tube for the camera end and a cut up lens ass-cap for the lens end], or getting the novoflex... same lens for high-mag macro, and wide angle to standard... sweet as! has anyone had much experience with reversed ef lenses? i'm thinking about getting a prime to increase sharpness, and have found that lenses give softer images as you go wider, ie: a 35mm is razor sharp, but 18mm on the zoom is pretty soft... any tips? sorry if this is confusing, basically i just want to find out if image softness is proportional to how wide a lens you use... cheers, aaron.
