430EX II + 100mm macro+ raynox 250?

Hi everyone

I bought a raynox 250 macro conversion lens for my 100mm macro in order to achieve a 2:1 ratio.

At 2:1, of course the lens is very close from the subject and the pop up flash light doesnt reach the subject anymmore, it is in shadow..

So I'm decided to buy a flash cuz I wanted one for some times. As i'm interested in portrait also, I thought that the 430exii would be perfect, with a bouncer like the lumiquest midibouncer.

My question is: does anybody used this setting for shooting macro, especially with a raynox 250?

because it would be painful to buy if it doesnt work for 2:1 !

PS. I can't afford the mt 24 ex..

Thank you!
