    I was considering purchasing an AB800 and AB1600 stroke from alien bees.

    Then after looking at the ABR800 ring light (which I wanted to get eventually), i started thinking of just getting only the AB1600 strobe and ABR800 ring light and letting the ring light serve as a secondary / fill light in place of the AB800, when not using it in it's "ring light" capacity.

    Of course i'd be using the ABR800 with a shoot thru umbrella, moon ring or softbox.

    So after all that rambling, can the ABR800 ring light also suffice as a "strobe" in place of the AB800?

    Thanks
    Ron

    And to add to the rambling above, I'm thinking about doing this so that I can use the $$$ saved from the AB 800 to pick up a Tamron 17-50.

    Any and all advise is appreciated.
