All metal design
Smooth surface for effortless mount
Extreme macro close-up results
Anodized black finishing
When I bought this, there was limited information in the description, so I bought it thinking it isnt much money, and it could be returned if it didnt do what I hoped it would. Stuff I wish I was in the description when I bought it:

This adapter allows you to mount a fast lens with a 52 mm filter thread backwards on your F mount camera.

This must be used in full manual mode on dslr cameras.

This worked as intended with our f1.8 35mm lens.

This will be less useful with slow lenses, because there wont be enough light to find focus. It worked, but not well enough to try to get any pictures with the 55-200 lense at 55, and didnt work well at all at 200 to dark to see focus.

On our 55-200 zoom lens at least, the zoom ring works as a focus ring, making it so you can get perfect focus on a tripod without a macro mount or moving the tripod. A fast extending barrel zoom with an aperture ring might actually be better with this than a macro prime lens other than the the manual metering issue many cameras will have with that arrangement.

Old lenses might have convenient aperture rings, but modern lenses will require you to manually adjust aperture against minor spring tension. At first I thought I would jam the aperture open with something delicately, but it turns out that you need to adjust aperture to get good shots handheld. This is because you need light to focus, and you need depth of field to get good macro shots of most stuff the F1.8 35mm reversed and set to f1.8 doesnt have enough depth of field to put the top and bottom of the mint mark on a coin in focus at the same time. If this paragraph doesnt make sense to you, you are unlikely to be happy with this item.

Bought this for my nikon d3300 dslr so i could reverse my 18-55mm lens and use it as a macro lens. This reversing ring is a good fit for both the camera body and the lens. Now thinking about getting one for my 55-300mm lens to see what that would be like as a macro lens. Bought this for my nikon d3300 dslr so i could reverse my 18-55mm lens and use it as a macro lens.

OK....this item does fit on the Nikon D3200, it will fit in place very firm, it is hard to get it off again, but that also means it will fit good. The lens does fit on the Ring backwards now , but the camera will not recognize the lens anymore, so it says you have no lens installed. This means that most operation modea cannot be used when you have this setupo. However...It is possible to use it , but you have to use the Manual modus and some trics. Took a while to be able to use it......quality is Ok and price is good.
