comment What features would cause a portrait photographer to choose a DSLR over Mirrorless?
@BBking Portrait lenses aren't any smaller if you're using a full frame mirrorless camera such as the Sony A7, so the larger grip of a DSLR may be beneficial.

comment Astrophotography with an 800mm
You can also image Saturn and make out it's rings with a DSLR though you might need a slightly longer focal length.

comment Is there a cheaper alternative to Novoflex' Macro Reversal Adapter for controlling a reversed lens?
@ysap Firstly the 85L makes a poor choice of lens to reverse, you want to use a wideangle lens which will give you higher magnification, secondly I highly doubt the canon AF motors have sufficiently fine steps to AF properly at super macro distances, or whether the AF system will perform correctly at all with the lens reversed (will definitely depend on whether the lens is internal focus or not).
