And that's why I recommend enlarger lenses on bellows (cheap and flexible), or a Raynox on a lens you already have (cheap and easy).
Also, a Raynox maintains auto-exposure, unlike bellows. Reversing a lens loses auto-exposure, but reversing a lens on the end of another lens maintains auto exposure (assuming the lens on the camera is an auto lens). Macro is tough enough without worrying about exposing properly.

I paid $110 for mine last year and overpaid. But given the fact that it's my most used lens I really don't mind.
