Reversing a tokina 11-16 can be done
For a long time I understood that the reversal of the tokina 11-16mm wide angle would be impossible for macro because the subject would have to be closer than the element permits. Mr. Allessandro has proven this to be false as he has accomplished the reversal of this lens seen here on his flikr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/5154261...57624511115868 In fact I think he may be the only person in the world to have done this, or at least document it with results. It would be great to have a macro lens that could go that wide but for right now I think I would be to afraid to scratch the lens element on my 11-16 so I may have to pass for now but we shall see. Anyone else ballsy enough to give it a try?
Gear: Canon t3i / 600d, Full Spectrum Canon t2i, Canon 18-55mm kit, Tokina 11-16mm, SMC Pentax-A 28mm f/2.8, SMC Pentax M 50mm f1.4, Sigma APO 70-300mm, Sigma UC 70-210mm, Carl Zeiss 8x30b, Barska Magnus APO 560mm @ F7.

A DSLR-lens will allways give you some space when reversed. Actually at least the distance of the register.
