Nikon BR-2A reviews

BR-2A Lens Reversing Ring is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solidly built, tricky to use This little piece of metal will allow you to get really close to your subject, but don't plan on getting very many photos in focus if your subject happens to be moving. I'm pleased with how it's built. It feels very sturdy, and it's definitely going to outlast most of my other equipment. But the depth of field is so shallow, achieving perfect focus is a matter of moving the camera back and forth a matter of millimeters. Now that I own this piece of gear, I realize it definitely doesn't replace a real macro lens. But it is fun and, I think, worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Excellent! It sounds crazy to obsess over the construction quality of something as simple as a reversing ring, but this thing is so beautifully machined. It's heavy for it's small size. I think it feels like chromed and painted brass. This ring has all of the perfect machining and extremely fine detail and precision as Nikon's beloved manual focus lenses. The ring screws onto lenses and mounts onto cameras very smoothly. I'm sure there are other, cheaper F mount reversing rings out there, but after having purchased this, I can't image using anything else. For all of Nikon's 52mm threaded manual focus Nikkor lenses, I couldn't imagine using anything else. This things is a wonderful reminder that Nikon is still capable of such wonderful, precision craftsmanship.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cheap easy macro This is pretty good for a cheap way to shot some macro. I had the best results with my 50mm prime G type lens. Using a tripod pointed straight down, I set the lens to infinity and then focus with the tripod moving the body up or down. I wouldn't use this out in the field due to the back glass element being exposed. But Nikon does make an adapter to add a filter for that problem. Users with live view will have a easier time too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it The design seems quite durable. It's heavier than I thought it would be - being that it's not made of cheap plastic. Works well. It goes onto my D300 easily and fits on lenses with 52mm thread. I do have a warning about this accessory: make sure that you have a lens with a manual aperture. If you don't, you will be looking through a completely black eyepiece because the aperture goes to its highest fstop choking out all light. Other than that enjoy your macro shooting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another use for a 50mm lens. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, it allows one to flip a 52mm diameter lens for macro(micro) filter. I use this with a D700 and a D200, and my 50mm 1.4 and 1.8 lenses. Some may complain about the loss of auto focus, but when you are dealing with such a narrow depth of field, who cares. You do have to take your time threaing the lens. I recommend a BR-3 so you can place a protective filter over the end of the lens. I hate dust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy This works beautifully on my D40 and 35mm f/1.8 prime Nikkor. And the close-up one gets is better than a 1:1 dedicated macro lens, IMHO. For what it costs, its a no brainer for anyone who wants to try macro photography.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as a micro The reversing ring worked as advertised but I would only use it in a pinch. I mounted it on an old unused 50mm Nikkor. You must place the reversed lens very close to the subject. Then you don't focus anything but instead move the camera body back and forth until sharp focus is achieved. A tripod is almost a must. However, it does give decent micro shots and saves the weight of carrying around a real micro lens. Also, get the Nikon BR3 filter adapter for 52mm threads or its equivalent for other lens sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first step in reversing a lens I recommend attaching the BR-2A to the camera body, then screwing your lens onto the adapter. Less stress on the filter threads that way.
