Thanks for the advice and comments guys...  think i'll the Kenko ones as I can actually buy them here in India! :)

reversing my nifty-fifty is great 2 lenses for 100€, both getting good results! no brainer for anyone (like me) who wanted to give macro a bash! :)

I have not. But will it work? Because the wider the lens the more the magnification - I think basically the wider angle of view now works in reverse. The 100 macro should not be that great a macro lens (as it is straight on) when reversed. But this is all my conjecture.
Need to learn a lot more.

Just for my curiosity. How much does the Kenko tubes cost in Indian Rs. (I am Indian, but right now in USA for studies, have never bought any camera equipment in India, so just want to know). If you want you can send me a personal message.
