Re: Best Macro Flash Unit for Pentax F2.8 100MM WR?

What I use is a Phoenix RL-59P which is a dedicated TTL (but not P-TTL) ring flash for Pentax camera bodies, film and digital. It does TTL up to the *ist D and DL and can be used in auto mode on newer bodies. I have used it on my *ist D, K10 and K20 cameras with a Vivitar S1 105/2.5 Macro or with Sigma and Tamron AF 90mm macro lenses. Also comes with different size adapters for different macro lenses. Can be bought used for under $100.
