    I only have one question.
    What is the applicable limit to lense stacking?
    (Could you use a Sigma 50-500mm against a super-wide 11-16mm, is what I'm trying to ask)

    Don't have interchangeable lenses on the current digital but on my old film camera could get almost as close by just reversing a single lens (without extension) - looks like the 105 in the demo is just replacing the bellows?

    No good for me ...
    My only lense that covers 100mm has a 77mm front element. My 50mm f/1.8 is 52mm I think.

    But .... if you use extension tubes then they will turn every lense into a macro.

    Mild examples here: http://www.photoforum.com/index.php?act=ST...=31&t=33150
    If I added extra tubes and adjut my focus/zoom then I can get to about 1cm away

    THEY ALSO SELL REVERSING RINGS THAT ARE THREADED TO FIT FILTER SIDE TO YOUR CAMERA MOUNT ON THE OTHER..THEY WORK JUST AS WELL...(PUTS YOUR LENS ON BACKWARDS)
    I STILL PREFER A BELLOWS THOUGH
