I can see now that even with a softbox like the one I linked to and the hood off the lens, the lens might stick out further. I didn't realize it was so long with the extension tubes attached-- it makes sense that an 85mm fast prime would be longer than a 50mm prime.

Another thing to try, when you get your softbox, is getting the flash off the camera, either with a cheap radio trigger or cable. A flash bracket might help give just the right angle(s) and position, of course at extra expense.

I like the Gorillapod! I have to get one of those sometime.
