Can anyone recommend a proper ring flash for the DP3M?

Re: How is it not a ring flash?

The 140 Macro contains two small strobes on each side of the ring and two focusing lights on the upper and lower sides of the ring. Images shot with this strobe exhibit two shadows and two reflections of the lights. A real ring flash would not show two separate shadows and it would reflect as a ring shape. That's why the Sigma 140 Macro isn't a ring flash. IMHO this makes it a better flash for macro work. You can shape your objects by modulating the output of the two strobes separately. A ring flash would give you a very flat light.
