just been looking to get a a flash. this is the right price just wondering if its capabilities are to par for macro work. was looking at ring lights but they are much more $$$.
 
Void .. I bought it today :)
So far so good
 
If you can get yourself a flash bracket and hold the flash over the end of the lens with the head having a slightly forward angle and use something like a softbox (eg lumiquest softbox) then you will have a fantastic light source. (if you're on flickr look up LordV who uses this setup) A little forward heavy, but not quiet as bad as a 580ex2 and certainly cheaper than the ring or twinflashes.
 
Ahh i have seen a lot of his work. impressive stuff! Im looking into a soft box for sure and learning about the rest as we speak.
