Sony NEX Reverse Lens Adapter Screwed on Filter Ring

Here's a very inexpensive way to get great Macro shots on you Sony NEX. E-mount reverse lens adapters are now available. The adapter allows us to use any lens reversed by using the lens filter thread. Make sure to use a lens with a manual aperture ring to conrtol depth of field. They come in 49mm, 52mm, 58mm filter ring sizes. They are available on eBay.

  1. Hi Guys but I just bought an Nex 5 and planning to buy an a-mount adapter for a 55 - 200 mm SAM lens. I know it doesnt have inbuilt lens image stabilization, do you guys think it is worth it to invest money to buy adapter + lens?

  2. I think you should try it out first. I've read focusing with the LA-EA1 adapter can be slow. Why not save up for the E 18-200?

  4. Hi, how do you set the camera so that it allows us to take photos using reverse ring? I bought the reverse adaptor from the above mentioned link but when I mount the 18-55mm lens onto the camera reversely, the NEX-5 doesnt allow me to take any photos, saying lens not recognise.

  6. Hi Ken,

    Thanks for the info. Need one more piece of advise from you...what else must I do to take macro shots? When i fixed the lens to the camera and snap shots, all are either black or extremely dark. Please pardon me for being noob.

  7. Sony NEX lenses will go to mininum aperture when it's not connected to the camera, look inside the lens and you will see a tiny hole. Go to a local camera shop and look for a manual lens with an aperture ring.
