im also using my A50/1.7 for reversed macro. The reason is I don't currently have ring couplers and the 49mm filter of the pentax lens fits perfectly on my other 52mm lenses in normal position :-)

you can also pixel peep with a reversed lens:
Now THAT's Pixel peeping..

I've only tried one reversal in the 4 years I've had the attachment..

The scale on my FA31 f1.8, just to see how it worked. Taken with the A50 f1:1.2 @ f22 because the adapter I have is 52mm..

i also found a really easy way to do macro photography: small point and shoot cameras. LOL.

those little things can get pretty close! and the convenience over SLR's is tenfold!
