I want buy a Macro Reversing Ring for Macro shot but then I can't protect the lens with a filter. Can I use Reverse Protect Ring for lens filter (like UV filer) or lens Cap?

    I have also same issue, I have nikon d3200 and have a Reverse ring but how can I add a protector or lense filter to the open area of the lense? Is there any adapter to hold any filter on reverse lense? – Mithun Sen Nov 7 '14 at 13:50

    "Protective" filters don't protect lenses near as much as most people think they do, and their flat surfaces can introduce a lot of unwanted reflections that can result in lens flare, ghosting, and a general reduction in optical quality. Just say "no" to protective filters and let your lens reach its potential image quality! – Michael C Nov 9 '14 at 1:20

Some people cut a hole in a rear lens cap and then attach a step ring to which they can add a filter. Others just try to be careful when shooting with a reversed lens.

Update: As explained in this answer, if you look hard enough you can find a commercial version of the same thing -- a rear mount adapter that holds 58mm filters.
