@drh681 Yes of course, but not necessarily to the same degree. Go to this page on my site: http://www.wingedmammal.com/daily_emergence/chimera_octa_2/chimera_octa_2.shtml Compare "grid, sock, deflector disc" with "grid, sock, and Nikon diffuser", you'll notice you get more brightness with the Nikon diffuser.
