It looks bulkier, but also looks a little less expensive... have you seen the Paul C. Buff Alien Bee Ringflash?

This is a ring flash for shooting things like fashion photography in a studio, and at people distances it would be great. Bear in mind it needs an A/C cord or a heavy battery to use.

However for shooting macros I would imagine it is too big and bulky. It likely can't be stopped down enough to shoot the average macro object.
