Macro ring flash?
7 months ago

I'd like to get a macro flash for my Minolta 100 mm f/2.8 with A900. I'm not inclined to get the Sony twin flash unit but prefer a ring unit. I've seen that the Sony ring light is not highly thought of and the original Minolta ring flash is no longer (easily) available. So the alternatives I'm looking include the Sigma EM 140 and the Metz 15 MS1. The Bower, from it's price, seems like it's not as flexible as the other 2.

I'd very much appreciate help from those of you who are familiar with these – and any other units that I might have missed. Also I'm not really sure how the Metz is controlled by the camera.

Thanks much,

Alan
