52mm to 58mm Macro Coupler (Male to Male) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5:1 macro's made easy this product is screwed into the filter ends of two lenses in order to attach the lenses face to face. im using it to attach a 50mm prime to a 250mm that is attached to the camera, and it gives me about 5:1 macro ability. If you've got two lenses like this, this macro coupler gives you super macro ability at a bargain. Just make sure to check your filter sizes on the lenses you are buying this for and make sure to get the right size. i have no complaints about this coupler - that being said my only complaint is in the technique itself. it requires you to be very close to your subject and your DoF is almost non existent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cheap Macro Answer Ok, so first off, I gave this 5 stars across the board forwhat it is, an $8 answer to an otherwise very expensivequestion, What should I buy for a Macro lens? Well, Idecided that since I will not currently be making money offof my macro photography, that I'd still with this solution.Basically, this takes two lenses. The first lens is mountedto the camera normally, the coupler is threaded in, and thenthe second lens is threaded in backwards or facing the firstlens and threaded into the coupler. The second lens thenbecomes both a magnifying lens and shortens the minimumfocal distance. I used a Canon 70-300mm IS and a Canon 50mm reversed. Handheld is pretty tough, but doable. I'll probably be pickingup a macro rail for more fine focusing. Expertise: Semi-Pro Problems Encountered: Vignetting is an big issue. Don't get this item if you don'tlike the Holga/toy camera style of shot. As far as I cantell, there is nothing that can be done about that... butthat's not necessarily a problem, its more of a style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, but be aware of added extension ... 5 stars for fit and finish. My typical setup for macro photography is using my NIKKOR 85mm Micro for the main lens and my NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 AFS lens as the reversed lens. For a long time I attached the reversed lens with two strips of gaffers tape which worked fine but did inhibit access to the focus ring on the reversed lens. This reversing ring fixed that problem of course but I noticed an issue with close focusing when using this ring for the first time. It took a few minutes to dawn on me that adding the ring actually added extension between the two lenses which in my case resulted in the closest focusing distance being inside the reversed lens. Overall I measure approximately 6.5mm of added extension with this tube. I can compensate for the added extension by adjusting the focus ring of the reversed lens but its something that serious macro photographers should be aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Metal Coupler This 52 to 58 macro coupler arrived earlier than expected, and arrived in excellent condition. It's hardly a complex piece of machinery. But it should be noted it is, in fact machinery. A metal device that attaches comfortably to both lenses, as intended. Another good job, B&H. You folks are reliable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made I bought this to play around with macro photography without making a big investment. I still have my old Canon SLR with its 50mm lens as well as a Canon DSLR with a nice 50mm lens. The filter sizes are 52mm and 58mm respectively. I've used this a few times experimentally and it does work - obviously not as well as a macro lens! The coupler is very well machined and fit the filter threads of both lenses perfectly. Recommended if you happen to own multiple lenses and want to experiment with macro photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great i bought this to get some macro shots by using a 18-55is and a nifty fifty attached via the coupler face to face. it works as its supposed to and i'm very happy with the results i have achieved. Using this coupler i am able to use autofocus of the 18-55.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cheapest way to get into macro! Good quality and build, knurled edges, mat black finish, it does the job. As it's small, I leave it on the lens to prevent losing it! The only fault is that it's 2 threads wide on each side when it should be 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great.... Minus the vignette Does exactly what it is supposed to do but there is a very large vignette. Expect to do a reasonable crop if you want to have these shots printed.... But hey... Macros for 7 bucks.... can't complain
