    Thanks both

    Bryan - my flash setup with that lens is (currently....I experiment and change every so often)

    MT-24ex with flash heads diffused by Stofen diffusers. On head mounted on a Kaiser Hotshoe to raise it to a more "flood" position. Flash set to manual mode - power around 1/16 - 1/32 output, depending on what I need to expose and magnification.

    Yes, you're right Frequency, it's only the face that is parallel to the camera, the body is twisted to the side. So with the limited DOF on the lens, only the face and front leg is in full focus , the body is blurred slightly due to it being out of focal range.

    Bryan - yes I bought the 24 as my first flash, after careful reading of reviews, have tried some off flash stuff since but for ease of use the twin flash is great.
