Oh.My.God.This is the most amazing thing i have ever seen! and I was about to go and buy an expensive lens! It is kinda nerve racking using the lens backwards...but still, hooray! :D

The lens is moving while you are shooting. You can by mounts for this for as little as $8. I would recommend that.

You can change the aperture of the lens on a Canon by holding down the DOF preview button and taking off the lens at the same time. :)
